words can not express my mixed emotions on the passing of George. I am sad
that my friend and coworker will not be here and I will miss him. I rejoice that he is with God and his body is healed,
he is happy and watching over us. Thank you for this opportunity to know and love him too.
can not express my mixed emotions on the passing of George Hufnagel. He was truly a wonderful and caring man. He will be
greatly missed. He was an inspiration to me. We would always cheer on the steelers and when he did not get the chance to
see a game I would fill him in. I also remember one day when he was in a middle of a sermon and my daughter was in high school
and was going to go to college as an English major. He would say I need to watch my english or grammar or I will be corrected
and he chuckled as he looked at my daughter Ashley. My sympathy goes to his wife and children. Just know that he is no longer
sick. My prayers are with all of you at this time. If you all need anything please do not hesitate to call.
Our thoughts and prayers are with
you and your family, Babs... Pastor George will be sincerely missed!

I met George in 1973 at Ft. Riley Kansas.
We worked together as company clerks and became friends. I was one of the first person's he told about his decision
to follow Christ. I always felt like it was a divine appointment that we were to meet. I know that our heavenly Father was
pleased to tell him "Well done, good and faithful servant". Someday in the not too distant future I look forward
to sitting down with you and catching up. Rest In Peace my friend
Dear Babs. So sorry to hear of George's passing. I was searching for you to have you consider joining
us in Cranbrook for our 70th Church Anniversary in June/July of 2018 when I came across the news. You were both so memorable
in our lives here in the Kootenays and we thank you (again) for your service. Gary & Shirley firstname.lastname@example.orgGary Toyota
