At the time of his graduation from the University of Dayton, George #35 was largely considered to be one of the best and most well-liked basketball players in the school’s history. George, who went to St. Rita High School in Chicago and was ranked as one of the top five recruits in the country, played the position of center as a sophomore for the University of Dayton Flyers team that won the National Invitational Tournament in 1968. In that year, the tournament was held in Dayton, Ohio. George finished his senior year at Dayton as the top scorer on the team and was awarded the title of Most Valuable Player. He was also the captain of the senior team.
George, a loving and caring parent, took great delight in providing delicious meals for his children and wife. George had a one-of-a-kind smile, and his embraces became his signature. He was a really generous person. It was impossible to resist his grin. The personalized notes and presents that he sent to his family, friends, and customers were all highly appreciated by those individuals. Before George was born, both of his parents and his brother, Joseph Jr., as well as his sister-in-law, Elaine, and his brother-in-law, Joseph Chopp, had already passed away.
