  1. To Karen ,Sue, Ray, Tracy and Steve
    Just wanted to let you know how sorry we are for the loss of George. He was a great friend and one of a kind guy. We did a lot of crazy things together growing up andI’ll never forget him. I am not able to attend his ceremony unfortunately but will be thinking of him and all of you. Take care all.
    Steve and Rose Skube

  2. To the entire Goure family, I can’t imagine the immense sorrow and pain you all have experienced these past few months. I worked with and for George for many years in many facilities throughout CDOC. His smile and sage words are etched in my mind and heart. My wish is that as the weeks and months pass, that your new normal without your loved ones will be filled with peace and gratitude that your lives were enriched.

  3. Steve, Ray, Tracy, Suzy, Karen,
    The loss of a sibling feels as though a part of your life is suddenly cut away. As time goes on you realize that your memories of growing up together help heal that loss and the feeling diminishes. I pray for each of you and your families during this trying time in the Goure Family.
    George was a guiding light in all our lives in some way. For me, he was the larger than life big brother of my best friends Steve and Ray. Later as I became an adult, he was always respectful and genuinely interested in my life and my family. I will miss him.
    Such fond and loving memories of growing up with the Goure family. Never forgotten.
    With Love,
    Michael Whittemore

  4. Busted digging a tunnel to Dave’s yard, we were told a story of a great dig. That’s the first time I heard his name.

  5. Worked with George at the Sheriff’s Department and have known him all these years and he will be sadly missed. I have good memories of working with him.

  6. I couldn’t believe when I heard the passing of George! I guess because he is someone you think will live forever. Capt. George Goure was my captain and friend while I worked at YOS several years ago! He was a hard, dedicated, never say no supervisor! Always willing to go the extra mile. On the outside of work loved to have fun and loved life!!! I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to know George! He will be missed!

  7. So very sorry for the loss of your beloved brother! He was taken too soon and too young, but the our Dear Lord needed a good one with him on this day. Cherish the memories that will last forever. Our prayers continue to be with you! ~~~Tom & Merle

  8. I was shocked to hear the passing of George…we worked together and grew through the ranks in DOC for many years. I will always remember his great attitude and infectious laugh. I am honored to have known George professionally and personally.
    Peace and Love be with the Goure family through this tough time….
    ~Dan and Billie Rae Foster

  9. Doug,
    I spent many hours talking with George about you (and Mark) while you all worked iron. George thought much of you so much that his son Jason’s middle name is Doug.
    Please know how much George respected you and how much you meant to my brother.
    Best,
    Ray

  10. George Hudson – I have many fond memories of you – you are a great cousin – your laugh, smile and big hugs will be missed always. Be at Peace my sweet and pass on kisses to all the rest of the clan who will greet you!
    Cousin Danielle

  11. Doug and I have so many memories of George when he was an ironworker. He was our friend. We loved his humor and attitude toward life. We are just so sorry to hear that he has passed. Our condolences to all of you.

  12. George you will truly be missed. You touched so many lives over the years and do live on in many many hearts. I will never forget you being there from day one of my career beginning at AVCF.. Rest in Peace George, 10-7 your now home.

    “We all know it can happen, When we put our Colors on. It only takes an instant, Then one of us is gone. Day to day we walk our beat, In God we put our faith. ‘Cause we’re the law inside the wall, We keep the Public safe. You’ve done the job that few can do, Your shift is at an end. Farewell my Brother, Rest in peace, On you we could depend.”

  13. I should have guessed that George was born on Valentines day because he had a heart as big as a house. He never turned away from a brother or sister in Blue if a need arose no matter how big. He was a blessing to every CDOC officer that knew him. He will be missed greatly and was loved by many.

  14. George’s smile could absolutely brighten your day! I have such good memories of him. More than one time his counsel kept me going for another day at YOS.

  15. I am out of state and will not be back in time to attend George’s service. He was a good man and leaves a legacy to be proud of. Rest in peace my friend!
