You may not remember my name, Michael Berens, but I was in a couple of bands with George including his own orchestra. I played trombone but in another band I also did spot vocals. George and I got together a few times at my own house to jam so that’s how you may remember me. If not, I understand but please accept my condolences to you and your entire family. He was a gentle, wonderful friend and musician who will be missed by all of us who were blessed to know and work with him.

Sincere sympathies to George's wife and children - I had the pleasure of meeting George in the early 80's when I joined the Lorne Scots Regimental Band in Oakville - I have wonderful memories of him during this time - he was a talented musician.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all -
