  15. I never met George personally, however I have been blessed by knowing his daughter, Lesley for many years. I am sure he was as much of a delight as she is. My thoughts and prayer are with your family. I have been through the same loss myself. Please take care, I hope to attend the service Friday morning.
    Love Always-
    Lorie Wagner (co-worker of Lesley)

  16. I was blessed to know George over the last couple of years. I always enjoyed visiting with George as he had some intersting stories to tell. He always had a smile.

  17. I work with Lesley. Through her I have gotten to know George. I made homemade chocolate chip cookies for Lesley. She gave some to her Dad. He loved them. So whenever I brought cookies to work I would give her some to take to George. Tuesday morning I saw two rainbows in the sky. My thoughts went immediately to your Dad & Mom. They are together again. I know what you are going through as I have been where you are now. Pray to GOD. He will help you through now and forever.

  18. Lesley… My deepest condolences to you and your family. Your dad was a gentleman and fantastic individual to work with at DuPont. His sports trivia was amazing and he could always make you laugh with his contagious and humorous personality…

  19. My condolences to your family. George and I played golf together during our years at Dupont and after we retired. He talked about how much he enjoyed golfing with his father-in-law at St. Andrew’s in Scotland. He had a very ‘wristy’ golf swing and a wonderful personality.

  20. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, Doug. Praying for friends to comfort you, faith to uphold you, and loving memories to help you smile again.
    With Heartfelt Sympathy,
    Kelly Musick

  21. Please accept our long distance sympathy, we love you all and praying for you. We have fond memories of Uncle George and know that he has left quite a legacy behind. Please give Alec and extra dog biscuit from us too! We love you all and God Bless You!

  22. So sorry to hear of George’s passing. I still have the golf ball he gave me several years ago. Just can’t seem to hit it. It stays in my bag. Always makes me think of George. God Bless.

  23. To the family of George Allan, I am sorry to hear of your loss. I hope in time that your memories will fill your heart.
