    You are in my prayers.

  4. Carolyn and family, I was so sorry to hear about George’s untimely passing. You all are in my prayers. No words can express how sad I feel for you. May your happy memories bring you comfort at this time.

  5. I worked with George for many years up until his retirement and always enjoyed talking with him about anything mechanical…George could figure it out and knew how it worked. With deepest sympathy, I am so sad to learn about the accident.

  6. Our hearts have been so hurt since we heard of George’s passing. A great Man and our great neighbor for over 30 years. George was always there to help
    us boys with our motorcycles and many other endeavors. He will always be in our hearts and be sorely missed. Our deepest sympathy to Carolyne and George McHenry III (GB) for your loss. Mike, Joe and Stephanie, The Murphy family. God Bless.

  7. We are devastated to hear of George’s passing. Wow what an amazing man! We have so many fond memories of our fun out at the race track, battling for the fastest motorcycle record… which I believe GB still holds :o), as well as the nights the boys tinkered with the drag bike in the garage. He always had an encouraging word to say and a smile on his face. I remember when we moved into our new house and needed our phone installed, USWest was in the middle of a strike. George came to our house with another engineer and a company attorney and installed our line. For years he joked with us that our install was the most expensive install the company ever had! He will be greatly missed by many! Carol and GB our deepest sympathies to you and all your family. We are unable to come this weekend but wanted you to know that our thoughts and prayers are with you all. We TRULY are blessed to have been able to call such a wonderful man FRIEND!
    With love, from his drag racing family,
    Jay and Kristin Blackburn
