I will NEVER forget this day...June Uncle Donald D. Crouse, Sr., detective on the Waukesha PD, was supposed to be with you that evening...he was off that day to celebrate his daughter, my cousin, Cindy's was her 8th birthday...I was 9 years old and we got the call that changed all of our lives ... and the party was literally over...we sat in stunned silence, tears flowing and thinking of your Uncle Don was sick...we all were! You were a young man with a young have often been thought of!

Uncle George, you were and always will be my hero. God took you way to young. There many things I will remember about you, but the most was how brave and how great a police officer you were.

P.S. I visited your resting place not long ago Uncle George.
