As the paper said, he was a devoted husband & father..I always remember him saying ‘your’re absolutely right Doreen’ the reason they never had a fight….Love to all, Corinne

  11. To the Sluman family:
    I’m not sure if you’re dad wouldv’e remembered me in passing here in Naples or back in the days in Rochester. I remember him well as he was, and always will be my late stepfather, James Walsh’s best friend. I remember many wonderful stories about George as Jim would remind me of their special times shared. Lucky #7 I believe was what Jim called him. My condolences extend to all of your family and may time heal your hearts & fill them with wonderful memories. God Bless
