Around 1975 he started teaching a group of dancers in his
garage using teach tapes. They would dance until they
broke and he would coach them until they got it right.
Two callers who were especially important in George becoming
a caller were Bob Fisk and Choctaw Miller.
George loved good food and enjoyed the art of eating. He
knew of the best restaurants in about any city we drove through
on our many trips to the National Square Dance Conventions;
George had attended 20 and I accompanied him to 12.
We had several time shares. His favorite was probably
Depot Bay in Washington; he enjoyed the sound of the waves and
rain on the roof.
George was well liked; we could not walk into a square dance
hall without someone welcoming us. It is amazing the
large number dancers he has taught, and who knew and cared for
George, one of the callers who helped establish Trailblazers,
passed away June 30, 2007 while at the National Square Dance
Convention in Charlotte NC. A Celebration of his Life
was held on July 29, 2007.
