Dear Peggy, so sorry to hear of George's passing. You are in our thoughts and prayers. We have found memories of George, he was a kind man. Prayers to you and your family.

Thomas and Michele Fritz

Sorry to hear of George's passing. The staff at the Conservation District really enjoyed working with George through the years at Kutz Printing. He was a great man.

Carl Goshorn

George and I were high school classmates and friends. I am very sorry that he has transitioned. My deepest heartfelt sympathies to his wife and family. If ever there was a good guy, "George was a good guy."

Bob Lewis

Peggy, George and I worked together since 1972. We had some great times selling and telling jokes. I will miss our weekly discussions concerning football. He was my best friend, and I will greatly miss him.


Condolences to the whole family from Ash's cousin, Trean; those who know me will know I am the daughter of a Miller girl, Violet, Ash's mother Mimi's sister. Very sorry to hear of his death, we were close as kids.

Trean K. Blumenthal

I was so sorry to learn of Ash's death. He was such a nice man. We sort of grew up together at their cabin at Laurel, and ours, plus our Father's had income producing real estate that they owned together. I also attended SLC during Ash's time there. His presence in our community and personally will be greatly missed. Our sincere condolences to you and the family.
