To Joy and your family. I knew George for nearly 40 years through Olivet Christian College and have many fond memories of his visits and chats. He sometimes sent his poetry too. He was a faithful servant of the Lord and we knew he prayed for the College each day. We were truly blessed in knowing George.November 21, 2020
‘A good name is more desirable than great riches to be esteemed is better than silver or gold. Proverbs 22:1
George was a great friend to the Napoleons and District Historical Society. At our Community Carols each December George would come and recite a poem that he had written about Christmas and the Napoleons/Cambrian Hill district. Everyone looked forward to George’s item. It was only the last time that George came two years ago that George said he may have to refer to his notes but every other time George recited the poem he had written, by memory.November 20, 2020
Thank you George for your contribution and friendship over the years. We will miss you.

It was an honour to have known George – a man of great Christian faith. He will be remembered as an enthusiastic , optimistic man with great writing skills. He was an inspiration with a great humour. George wrote a lovely poem for our older daughter when she was born. We are ever so grateful to have known George over the years. Our thoughts and prayers with Joyce and the family.November 20, 2020

Always enjoyed his interesting stories, his faith in God always shone out. Sympathies to the family.November 19, 2020
It is with some sadness that we read of George’s passing. George was a long-time supporter of Olivet Christian College in Campbells Creek near Castlemaine. Not only was he a hands-on helper during the College’s early working bees, but throughout the years George faithfully attended our annual general meetings and also, probably more importantly, prayed daily for all of the staff and students at the College. He was a man of great faith and was always ready to give public testimony to his Lord and Saviour. We could always count on George telling us the most interesting stories from his own life, always with a twinkle in his eye. He would recount his life’s many interesting experiences from his gold mining as a young man, to his war service, and experiences in later adult life. He would often share some of his poetry with us. We remember George speaking at our ANZAC Day Service in 2015 where he helped plant a Gallipoli commemorative Oaktree. Our heartfelt prayers and thoughts are with his wife Joyce and family at this time.

Joyce my prayers are with you and the family at this time.November 18, 2020
George was a generous and faithful friend all the years I knew him.
I will miss being able to drop in and see his happy face and his great and wise poetry.
From the Board, Management, and Volunteers at MMM Australia (Mobile Mission Maintenance).
George was a shining example of commitment and dedication. A faithful servant who served with MMM for many years through the 1980’s and 1990’s. George never stopped praying for the volunteers and work of MMM Australia.
His poetry inspired many and his encouragement lifted everyone who met him. He will be greatly missed.
Our sincere condolences to Joyce, Merlene, Albert, and the wider family.
A faithful servant who finished the race.November 18, 2020
