I am a friend of George’s son Anthony. I remember going over Anthony’s dads house all the time. In the winter he would build a snow fort out of wood and pile snow all around it. We would hangout in there. He had seats and tv and a heater in there if I recall. But me and Anthony loved to bowl 🎳 we bowled on leagues together on Saturday mornings. Anthony’s dad built a bowling alley out of wood and had plastic pins and balls. We would play for hours and I would sleep over. He was so kind and nice to me. Like I was family. He had a nickname for me. He called me (flannel) because of my freckles. He took all of Tony’s friends on a bike ride one year. On the canal bike path. We stopped for lunch and rode our bikes forever. We got lost. Lol kids parents where looking for us. It was getting dark. We had so much fun. That’s the memory’s I have of him. I am sorry for your loss. I haven’t seen him in years but I know he loved his family and he was the best ( I would say ) away from home dad ever.
I wish I could be there this weekend but my thoughts and prayers are with you all

Thank you
