George and Joyce met in 1960 at the Company home office in Chicago and they married in 1962. Starting a life based in Brookfield, WI, George and Joyce completed their family of 4 with Brian and Julie.

George became interested in carving birds and took several classed on how to carve and paint with expertise. During his retirement he became a Master Carver entering several competitions a year and winning many blue ribbons. George retired from Aon in 1991 at age 62.

During retirement, George and Joyce spent part of the winter in Sarasota, FL closer to Joyce’s
family and enjoying the warm weather. George pursued his outdoor hobbies of fishing, shelling, and golfing. George and Joyce enjoyed the many artistic events that were held in Sarasota.
