George found deep spiritual meaning ministering faithfully alongside the Kairos community over the past 40 years. He loved travel, visiting 30 countries and 48 of the 50 states. He would talk often of his travels and his days hitchhiking. He was especially fond of his time doing archaeology in Jordan in 1971. George loved his lifelong study of the Bible focusing particularly on Psalms and Isaiah. He took good joy woodworking in his shop, reading from and beyond his extensive library. He was passionate about art and music of eastern Orthodoxy.
