    During my 22 year tenure at Rivercrest, as Ag. teacher, George was one of my favorite students. His friendly and out-going personality was his most outstanding trait. He will be greatly missed. Judy, Jerry and Jimmy my most sincere sympathy is extended. Diane I never had the pleasure of meeting you.

    George was an awesome cowboy,friend, mentor to so many people I’m so thankful that I was blessed to call him my friend! He fought his battle with the utmost courage and faith. I’m thankful to know that as he took his final ride through the gates of heaven he was finally pain free and smiling down on us knowing that his lifetime dashes were full of memories that none of us will ever forget!! God bless his family for they meant the world to George. thanks again my friend until we meet again on the other side!! ♥♥♥ Jo Lynne Harr-Arkansas

  7. Greg Peters says:

    George was a dear friend and a heckuva good guy! We became friends years ago dealing on Dodge trucks and sponsoring Superbull here in Little Rock,Ar at Little Rock Dodge. He continued to buy trucks from me where ever I went. Loyalty like that barely exists anymore. More importantly he was as loyal a friend. George will always be loved and missed by The Dodge Boys her in Arkansas. RIP my friend.

    Judy and family — I am so sorry for your loss. He was a good friend of my two children (Britt & Deborah Scott) during school at Bogata and Rivercrest High and also in Church at Bogata. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. In Christian Love. Audrey Scott

  9. Julia Minix-Goss says:

    Our hearts are heavy thinking of existing on this earth without knowing George is further than a phone call away. He was truly one of the greatest friends, producers, mentors, or Cowboys, we have ever known. God is good ALL the time so I’m comforted by his calling of George at this time. Excellence in all areas of life was truly George’s strong suit. From Wild Class productions to Superbull Stardom. Thanks you for always including our family farm with you world class standards!!!! Peace and comfort is our prayer for all who are missing him today.
    With Love and our utmost respect,

    Had the privilege of pushing dirt for George’s events the last several years. He was a professional and great man to work for, which is obvious by the outpouring of comments from the rodeo world.

    RIP George!

  12. Bill Buckman says:

    Judy, Tonya, Jerry, Jimmy, Diane,–family,
    George was such a friend to many, hard to imagine anyone that ever met him that would not have wanted him as their friend, he was just that kind of guy. He was not only my friend, but my ol’duck hunting buddy from many years ago. I miss him already. So glad I got that short visit with him last week.

    From myself and my brother, please know our deepest sympathy to you all in this loss of a member of a family that has been friends to our family for so, so many years. God Bless and comfort.

    Bill and Earl Lynn Buckman
