Remembering George Gelly

George Gelly passed away on Saturday, February 24th.
Most of us who had the opportunity to work with George found him very memorable. He brought a unique perspective to everyday interactions. Maybe he challenged our thinking, helped us with a tough problem, made us laugh or just tested our patience. He likely did all of these and more.

The purpose of this "GoFundMe" page is to collect these memories of George for his children Robert, Sylas and Finnian.

The comments and photos that you leave below will be bundled up and given to George's kids. Please leave a story about George. We hope to give his kids a sense of their father's personality and passions.

All donations will be collected and invested in savings bonds for the kids as a gift from George's work colleagues.
