    I have so many wonderful memories of George. I will never forget our Christmas Eve traditions...searching for the Caroling Truck and, thanks to George, getting on it and gracing Toluca Lake with our not-so-polished voices. On a more embarrassing note (if...  more

    While George may have left our physical realm, he is most certainly enjoying his time and awaiting us in the spiritual realm. I can imagine that George is currently running around meeting all his great ancestors and sharing stories, trying to explain to...  more

    I am so sorry to hear this news. George was just a great person to work with and was very helpful to me and the team at UPS through the years. I always enjoyed ISC meetings when George was in the room, as well as the after-meetings! 😀 My deepest...  more

    I've tried to write this many times now and every time I start, I get lost in my thoughts and memories of time spent with George. It's hard to cram years of good times in to a few sentences, especially when talking about George. I don't think I would be...  more

    Saying that George was an amazing man is an understatement. I had the privilege of knowing him through his wonderful daughter, Clare, who I am friends with. Every time I would walk into the Griffins house, George would fill up the room with smiles and...  more

    I could ALWAYS count on George for support, assistance, memory, anything I needed. So many times, I'd call with a KC-10 question for George...especially on MSG-3...and George would always be there!! A heck of a nice guy, would give you the shirt off...  more

    I don’t recall the exact year I started interfacing with George as it was well over 20 years ago. Our shared passion for the aircraft industry sparked one conversation after another; and within a short period...  more

    One of the fun experiences that the Maintenance Programs team had with George was having the opportunity to participate in the plane pull on August 20, 2016. The uniqueness of this event was that we got to pull a 757 at the Long Beach Airport. This was...  more

    Will always remember how welcoming the Griffin house was when Conor and myself descended upon it for our holiday many years ago. I had never eaten Mexican food, so George brought us to his favourite Mexican restaurant and with that mischievous look in...  more

    My Uncle George had a bigger impact on my life than he probably ever realized. When I was young, I wanted to be an Olympic gymnast, so I moved away from and went to Southern California to train. He and Anne, both young and pre-children, would drive...  more

    To see a memorial page for George is incredibly hard for many. Because to see a memorial page means that he has left our lives this side of Heaven, and to me it seems like we weren't done laughing or partying yet.

    There really aren't words to describe...  more

    What can you really say about George that most who knew him did not already know. I will share the time we first met which for me made a big impression. I met George in 2005 during a business trip to Indonesia. I had never even been out of the country,...  more

    I knew George for a large portion of my childhood, teen-hood and throughout my early, mid to late 20's. I grew up with his kids. He would always make me laugh, smile, always cracked jokes with me, gave me great advice and had an all around positive vibe...  more
