    Kay Parker called us and needless to say, we were shocked and saddened to hear about George. You Baron’s were our neighbors for 26 years and will always be very special to us. Nancy, Patty, Sue and Pam, we are so sorry. Helen, I can’t even imagine what you’re going through right now. George was a truly wonderful man. We love you all……..Dolly & Ed

    So sorry to hear about George. I was a Teaching Assistant at English Village ,which I retired 4 yrs. ago, where George would volunteer every Thursday. He was a wonderful person and we always talked about our bowling scores and his golf games. He was great working with the children. They all loved him. I enjoyed seeing him every week. Always had a smile. He will surely be missed.

    To Helen, all the girls and your family’s – George will be missed. All the years as a kid growing up right next door, George was always very kind to me. He was always there when I needed something re-welded for one of many bikes/motorcycles/go carts. George will be missed. Thoughts and prayers to the entire family.
