George graduated from Farrington High School in 1953. In college, he started his service to our country with the Air Force ROTC. After two years at UH-Manoa, he decided to go directly into pilot training with the Air Force. There, he flew faster than the speed of sound and earned the nickname "Dusty." As a fighter pilot in the Air Force, and then later with the Air National Guard, George rose to the rank of Major. As a civilian, from 1964 to 1995, George flew as a Captain for Aloha Airlines.
He was a philanthropist and avid skier, but above all else he was a faithful son of God and a dedicated member of Kalihi Union Church.
He will be remembered as a modest, peaceful, and kind man who dedicated his life to God.
On March 30, 2021, George was laid to rest at Punchbowl Memorial Cemetery.
A Celebration of Life will be held at Kalihi Union Church on Friday, August 6. Visitation at 3 pm. Service at 4 pm. Covid-19 guidelines will be followed with mandatory face masks and social distancing.
