George and I joined the Board of Directors of American Eagle Financial Credit Union the same year, 1986, and we served together for may years. He was always focused on doing what was best for the membership.
My wife Jo and I mourn his passing and we extend our deepest sympathy to Barbara and the family.

Barbara and the entire Contois family,
I was sorry to see that George has passed away and would like to offer my condolences to the family. I was out of state in Virginia and I'm sorry I missed the calling hours and prayer service. He was a good man and also an inspiration to others at Pratt involved in the Union. He was my Union Representative for a while and always tried to do the right thing. He was very helpful to me when I was President of Local 1746. He was missed when he left to work for AFSCME.
