  • Notes 
    • He was like a rock, always there believed in education and didn't differentiate between sons, and daughters. He had twinkling eyes, laughed alot, worked very hard and always shouldered his responsibilities and gave his children chances he never had. He and his wife made a trip to Australia to visit their daughter Jean who lived in Sydney, their other daughter Nancy who lived in Canberra at the time. Fortunately Nancy's husband was working in Sydney at the time so both daughter's and their family's were there to greet them. When driving them back to Nancy's home in Canberra a tire blew out in the car, the car rolled, George and baby Andrew were thrown out. He had terrifying head injuries and died some months later in Adelaide hospital. Andrew was ok.
