George was an amazing man with the kindest heart. We are all so sad that he is gone, but thankful that he's not suffering anymore. He was so excited about the Hayride, sporting his t-shirt around town, coming by to watch the progress...doing everything he could to help Paul and Jason get this thing going. Unfortunately, he was too sick to come once it actually started.

 

That sweet man will be missed by so many. Everyone please keep Paul and Nick and the grandkids in your prayers...they will certainly be in ours. :(

George was my bus driver in elementary school. He ws always very nice. Every Friday he would stop by Grand's after all the kids were picked up in the morning an buy us all a coke for "pop-a-top fridays." Me and my cousins were his last stop in the afternoon and he would stop by store and buy us candy and ice cream before taking us home. George was a great man and will be sorely missed.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Alsobrook family. George was my daughters' bus driver, they both loved him so much! He was a regular at Rodney's in Hiram too, where one of my daughter's worked with Allie Alsobrook. This great man has left a lot of positive memories in the lives of the people he came into contact with.

 

Rest In Peace, George. :wub:

He was my oldest daughter's bus driver when she was in middle school. He's bought her many cokes and lots of candy!!! She really, really liked him. He was very good to his "kids". I'll let her know about his passing.
