He grew up in the Glenrock/Casper area on Poison Spider Road. At the age of 14, George gave himself to God. From that moment on, he never lost faith no matter how challenging life may have been. He graduated from Natrona County High School in 1952. On New Year’s Eve 1954, George met the love of his life, Shirley A. Lytle. They married on March 26, 1955. They were blessed with four children over the next five years. Sixteen years later, they were blessed with their fifth child. George owned George’s Maintenance Service from 1964-1970 in Casper.

George then started Maintenance Service (later known as Carefree Cleaning) in 1986. In 1993, George retired. He and Shirley traveled the United States in their fifth-wheel camper. They spent their summers working at Sheridan Lake and their winters in Phoenix, AZ. In 2013, George moved to the Pioneer Manor where he enjoyed building puzzles and volunteering at the Senior Center.
