    I bought a Sony tape deck from George and he was gracious enough to ship it to me even though his ad stated that shipping was not available. From reading all of the stories and sentiments shared here it is clear that he was an extraordinary gentleman. May he be resting in peace.

    I was going to be looking for George's records for sale thread. Needless to say I'm floored. The last time I was in contact with George we were talking about my illness. He never let on how sick he was. RIP George.

    Holy cow...I can't believe I'm just now seeing this. I never knew George personally but enjoyed his contribution to threads and his "banter" with people. I recall seeing him here and on the Polk Audio forum. May he rest in peace....
