    I met George and became his friend in the past several years. He was a kind and gentle person who always had a smile on his face. He will be missed. My condolences to his family and especially his mother. George told me how much he enjoyed visiting with her and that she was such good company. I am so sorry for your loss. Jim

    Donna, Charlie and Vance,

    I had a crush on George since I was about 8. Shh…don’t tell anyone! After that stage, I always think of him as my uncle. Gonna miss him.

    love to you all,
    Sandi

    George lived for the hills! I know because he would always make interesting conversation on the flats and downhills, but as we headed uphill he would pick up speed and energy and happily pass with that George smile! all the while keeping a running conversation with whoever could match his pace! I won’t drop names here but you know who you are, feet turning over swiftly, long strides, and conversation echoing over the next hill! I will miss you dearly, George. I was just beginning to enjoy your wonderful stories, appreciate your kind, insightful and thoughtful comments about those around you – George loved PEOPLE! – and appreciate your enthusiasm for commerce, ideas, and a better vision in general.

    Wonderful memories, and many happy images fill my mind of this kind and gentle man…One who would laugh about himself but never laughed at his friends….instead laughed with them, and usually about himself….much respect and love for our friend…We will never forget and will always cherish the friendship you offered us and gave of yourself freely…much love…..M

    George grew up with our kids and they all shared a common bond due to this shared experience. Over these many years he regularly came to see us especially on holidays and we so looked forward to his visits! He always had a smile on his face. If he was down or dejected he would never let on. His prime concern was always how we were doing. He was what we all hope our children will become: pleasane, kind, helpful, interested in others,vand very respectful . We will always love George and the family who encouraged him to become so very special.

    My sincere condolences to the McCabe Family. I hiked with George a few times with the Hiking club, and he seemed like such an up-beat happy guy who enjoyed life! He leaves with me the thought to embrace every day and enjoy life to the fullest!

    George & I shared some great times, on the trails & off. It is so fitting that he was near the park that he loved when he left us.

    George was the best friend a person could have. He always had time to listen, he always gave good advice that was sound and principaled, and always from a caring heart, he had a zest for life that was uncommon; a good man, a good friend, a good human being. I will miss him but I will never be short of wonderful memories we all shared together. Sarah Leeper Tate

    During my first camping/hiking trip with Nashville Hiking Meetup about a couple of years ago, I ran out of water about halfway during the 6 mile hike at Grandfather Mountain in NC. At that moment, I thought I was in trouble. But luckily, George was there and gave me an extra bottle of water. George saved my day! Although I didn’t know George that well, I will never forget him and am not sure how I would have made it back without the water. Now whenever I go on a hike, I always carry an extra bottle or two of water in case someone else needed it. Thank goodness for people like George who set a positive example and had a heart of gold. He’ll truly be missed!
