I was very sorry to read of George's passing. I met George years ago and often relied on him for home inspections. Later, when I was remodeling a 90 year old house, George helped me pick out the kitchen cabinets and granite and installed the new kitchen. In the process he discovered a compromised support beam between the kitchen and hallway which, if not replaced, could have resulted in the collapse of the second floor. He was a skilled craftsman and just a wonderful person. I will miss him.

George did so much for us when we moved in to a huge fixer-upper. He was unflappable amidst the dog and the toddlers and the tipped over x-mas tree. Everything he worked on was perfect. He was an excellent carpenter. He enriched our lives by helping us live in an older home. I missed him when he retired but thought of him often. He will always be in our thoughts. Thank you George.

Marge & Family, We are very sorry for your loss. My best memory of George is he showed up to our car show in Streamwood and he was the first car to arrive. I was just behind him. We have a bunch of time to talk, and he was telling me stories of my grandfather (Joseph Baran) who I never met. Those few hours were amazing. His Vette looked & sounded awesome! He will be missed by many!God Bless.Thoughts & Prayers for you and your family.Scott J Bara n & Family (Sue, Joe & Eleanor)
