I'm sorry to learn that George has past. We had some great times together at Maury..... and mostly when we worked together with our fathers making skate boards for Myer Glazier at Princess Anne Box factory. There was a third boy, Mike Midgette who was a nephew of two adults that also work in the machine. George had his aunt's 1957 Desoto, with a Hemi engine. We cut up at the factory while cutting out, sanding and assembling the skate boards. Probably the first commercial factory producing skate board. At a dollar an hour, we worked right after school and Saturdays. You can not image the jokes we pulled on each other. Fun times. Like at lunch time one day we left school with a couple of girls. I was driving his Desoto. We were flying when three girls were driving a 57 ford. They stopped suddenly and I ram the Desoto into the Ford. It was pushed 15 feet. The Ford had a large bumper hitch so it was not damaged. The Desoto had very little damage to the grill. Two weeks later George backed into a concrete base for a parking lot at the bowling alley on Military highway. That did change the looks of the bumper and trunk. Then we painted it blue at the factory.

One event that George and I were completely humiliated was in early 64 we were in the Desoto and o the way to school the brakes on the Desoto locked up and then failed. We carefully drove it back to his house, and later we left to go to work. Norfolk finest caught us and took us to Maury and marched us up the front steps to the principal's office. All the windows were packed with our classmates looking at us coming up the stairs. We lived through it. We did still went to work.

George got the new Dodge Dart and then the Mercury. George and I would race each other (my 1960 Thunderbird). We had the money to have nice toys.

I would like to say that we always had fun together, whether working or playing after work/school. I went into the military for 27 years and we lost touch. I can see that George was blessed with a large family and wonderful life. That he truly was blessed in hs life.

I'm glad George and I crossed paths in this life.

I remember as a kid riding my bike down Trant Ave to see what the boys were up to. There were so many things in their yard, they were always doing something interesting. They never made me feel like the pest I’m sure they thought I was☺️. Later, I would find George at Scope working a booth and watching the hockey games when I was lucky enough to go there. And then he found ME there working a food stand when he was there racing. It was always a nice visit! Even if only for a moment. He’s going to be missed. Prayers for Martha and the family! Prayers for the friends that knew him well!—Susan Denson Johnson
