This section includes both obituaries and memories. Honoring our loved ones who have died does not end immediately after their passing. We recognize that… so we’re extending our obituary section to include individuals who may have left a long time ago. If you want to remember someone who is gone, either recently or longer ago, please send a photo and a few sentences to mskymkemp@gmail.com.

  • Hey Kym. I think you have an error in your headline. It looks like he would have been 50 this year, but the accident was 21 years ago today.

  • Great guy. He was a calm easy going young man at that time. I know without hesitation that at 50; he would be as respectful and responsible for his family and community. Happy memorial b day. Miss you bro.

  • May 8 would have been his 50th birthday, today is the 21st anniversary of his passing ❤️

  • My husband, Dana, admired him very much. One our first dates was going to watch the boat races on the Sacramento River in the Redding area. Dana was very sad to hear of his passing. Whenever we watch boat races on t.v. we think of him.

  • Lorrell and Barbara Brown

    We both thought a lot of George,a fine young man,taken too soon.
