    Thank you Welton. That was a lovely tribute to a talented man. So many memories – my entire childhood growing up in the theater… Thanks.

    A fitting tribute to “a scholar and a gentleman,” if ever there was one to warrant that now rather antique sounding title. George was sui generis in all those ways that Welton has outlined to gracefully.

    Bravo, Welton! Bravo! An excellent and heartfelt bow to the wonderful George. Would it be okay with you if I re-posted this memoir in its entirety with a link back to this website, with proper credit to you? I’ve already posted the link on my social media of FB & Twitter. I’d like to re-post this verbatim with credit on my entertainment blog L.A. Now & Then. – Thank you!

    George would have loved your tribute, Welton. I am so sorry to learn of his death. He definitely was one of a kind. Anne Marie

    Just read the obit for George in UT today…and found your beautiful tribute, Welton. I have so many great memories on & off stage w/ George. One of the kindest, funniest and brilliant human beings I’ve had the pleasure to know! Condolences to those he leaves behind. There is a whole in this world, but the next has made room for George, where he is now engaged in repartee w/ the best of ’em!

    My favorite contacts with George was the rich turn of phrase and literary depth of his emails and postings. It was easy to hear his measured cadence even just in text.
