George (Rick) died around August 2000. He was just going to turn 50 years old. He died from complications resulting from a lung transplant that had occurred a few years prior. He was last living in Colorado with his wife, Beth.

He enjoyed life and fought very hard for every day he had to share with his family, pet dogs and loved ones. He last worked for Continental Airlines as an aircraft mechanic after serving 10+ years in the Air Force.
