I remember a fairly long conversation with George during my first trip to the Keys in 1986. I absolutely recall buying about a dozen t-shirts with the flats' species on them. I also bought my first Seamaster there-though I really couldn't afford one. George and his bride were regulars at the Lazy Days restaurant in Islamorada and I would sometimes stop to say hello when I was there. I wanted to do it every time we went there, but he always had so many well wishers that he'd barely find time to eat! As far as I know he worked at World Wide Sportsman/Offshore Angler in Islamorada until the very end. Truly classy guys like George aren't around every corner so he will definitely be missed.
