From: James Klett
Relation: Worked at CPR together

I think fondly of George and our association with the CPR in Revelstoke. He kinda took me under his wing when I arrived, kicking and screaming. He was more like a father image for me as I attempted to get ahold of what was ahead of me job wise.
He was my go to guy!! I cannot put in words how helpful he was in my transition.
When ever I reminisce of my time in Revelstoke he always glides by providing a warm feeling. We share, with everybody, his loss.
