I have had the honor to call George my colleague for a number of years. Our paths would cross at company retreats and on various projects. Specifically, I remember celebrating his birthday in Las Vegas one year. He was surrounded by friends, family, and colleagues who shared their stories of George. From those stories you could tell that George was adventurous, authentic, and inquisitive. His principled approach to the Lipper Current, his fascinating journey through this world, and his good nature made it easy to admire George. I am glad our paths crossed, he will be missed.
