Ginny, Rebecca, Kara and Tyler, I'm so sorry for your loss. George was a great guy who would do anything for anyone. He was so happy when he could bring the team pizzas from Lou Malnati's in IL. He would put the seat warmer on and deliver them hot to the office in Milwaukee. He had so much passion for his Job, his family, sports and his music. I'm so glad I had the opportunity to work with him for the last 13 years and I will dearly miss him. May you find comfort in all your memories of him.

I was very sorry to hear of George's passing. I worked with George for the past few years dealing in seasonal produce. George always took time from his busy schedule to say hello when I called. I will miss working with such a true gentleman. My condolences to his entire family.

George was a great friend and coworker. To Ginny and the kids, he loved you all so very much and was so proud of any accomplishments you all have made. He loved his grandkids so much. He would always express how grateful and happy he was to see them the following day after a visit. I will miss our conversations about baseball, football and life in general. I am going to miss you George.

It was hard to get a word in edge wise as George would talk about sports or produce but I will always remember the gleam in his eye and passion in his voice when he was talking about Ginny and his family. Miss you buddy...

George had the biggest heart of anyone I’ve ever known and could compliment anyone for anything they did. I should know. He was constantly doing that to me. It has been an honor to work with him and I’ll always be grateful for all he taught me.

Dear Ginny, Cara & Tyler - please accept my sincerest condolences for you and your family . I’m so deeply saddened to hear of George’s passing. Coaching with George was an incredible privilege & I never walked away from George without feeling his genuine love for his family. George made everyone feel great and brought out the best in everyone. The greatest gift in life is knowing someone who could lift your spirits & George mastered this! I see so much of George in your character and it had to be one of his proudest achievements. R.I.P. George & Thanks for touching our lives in your special way!

I got to see Mr. Hurst whenever I would go over to Cara's house in high school and all my memories are of him smiling and laughing. He would tease and joke around with us and always made me feel welcome. Just thinking of him brings him a smile to my face. I can just imagine him with Jesus, smiling and laughing. I'm so sorry for your loss, I know how much you must miss him. I'm praying for your family and my heart is with you. Love, Stephanie

George was my friend for over 40 years. He was a family man, very religious, and had a big heart. His family and friends , especially his grandkids, were the most important things to him. He was a sports nut and loved his Chicago Cubs. On a professional level, he was one of the best produce people I had the pleasure to work with. He had a passion for the produce business that was infectious. George we will miss you. Ginny, my condolences to you and your entire family, Ross and Pam.

My deepest condolences to the Hurst Family. Though, I only knew George for a short time. The first day I met George he welcomed me as part of the Roundy’s family. We only spent 3 weeks together, however I heard about his wonderful family and how much he loved and cared about them. I’m forever grateful for the learnings about the Produce business and the importance of treating others as you would want a family member treated. George was a very special person who will be missed dearly by many of us. Thoughts and prayers to the Hurst Family. Dan Mora

My deepest condolences to the Hurst family as well as to his Roundy's family. I had the pleasure to know and work with George for several years and he truly was an enjoyable character that brightened my day with each interaction. I will miss my trips to Chicago to visit with George - and to see all of his photos of his family who he truly loved with every ounce of his being. George will truly be missed. I wish I could be there to pay my respects, but know that y'all are in my heart and mind in these days of grief.

Dear Ginny, sending my deepest condolences. I always had to smile when I saw George because he was always smiling. He'd always bring up our days at store 69 and some great memories. I hope you find peace in all your memories.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I grew up with George on Oakdale. We played together and were good friends for many years. as life happens we lost contact with each other due to careers and families. It wasn't until a couple of years ago we reconnected. He was a true character who I will always fondly remember. Bless you, Georgie.

I as many others lost a great friend. I’m sad for his wonderful family they have lost one of the best husbands and father’s put on this planet. I will never forget the sparkle in their eyes when they saw him coming. Any chance George had he would insist Of me and many others “come in for a minute to meet the family “. I’m thankful to have known George for 23 years and fortunate to speak with Ginny many times. Ginny , Rebecca, Cara and Tyler rest assure George is already making a name for himself in his new home. Thoughts and prayers to all. The Marinaro family
