He helped me get my first computer job over 30 years ago when it was difficult to get a job without experience. Remember him about 45-50 years ago in Flatbush/Kensington. Such a sweet guy. BDE.

All my wealth I have now, is thanks to him. I was one of the first chasisshe person he hired. I was with him almost all my working life. He gave jobs to a lot of religious people.
He had a golden heart and a pure hidishe neshmo. BDH

Thanks AYL, I thought about you among number of my friends who were able to launch good career thanks to him, nearly straight from Yeshiva or Kolel, passing by college. Which helped reinforcing Tora study among bochrim that don’t intend to be shluchim or Rabbis.

George was a man of faith. He had faith in himself. He had faith in his family. He had faith in his friends. He had faith in a lot of young people with no experience. He had faith in God. I think the totality of the men can be captured in his faith.

I was blessed to grow up as his close family friend and neighbor. In his humble and quiet way, he helped many families by giving jobs to hemishe young men in the IT field before it became the ” norm”. This helped may people launch thier careers. That is the greatest chesed. He was a class act- I never heard him speak disparagingly about another person. He was a true visionary in his field and he always worked to make those around him comfortable and happy. Although he was in the big leagues of IT at the time ( he… Read more »

I met George in 1962 on my first day starting at Dean Witter. He was a genius in the field of brokerage systems even though DW was still on punch cards. My wife Anne and I never missed the chance to see George when we returned to New York from home in California. He was always gracious, funny and loving as is his make-up. When we were on our way to Europe he always gave me a ten or twenty to give to anyone we saw on any street in need. I think we did that about 6 times. Whoever… Read more »

George was a very special person. He was a giving person and a menche. He provided parnasa to many people. I recall how he would let people train and learn the business in the office without asking anything from them. To me, I always felt that George looked out for me and made sure I was ok. I felt at home in the office and felt like he was extended family to me and my family. He also made sure that I was involved in many significant projects and learned a lot doing them. George, I will miss you, they… Read more »

Unfortunately I was not able to be at the levaya, thank you for sharing the video here on COL, at least we were able to participate in spirit. As a Mechutin of Gorge, I can say he was a most special Mentch. Someone who would go out of his way when he would see someone in need. to help them in a most kind fashion. He was a true example of a Ish Chesed, A man with a warm, good, and generous heart. Bh he had the Zechus to see his children following in his path. May he continue to… Read more »

To Denise, Joseph and Family, George will be remembered in my heart always. He gave me my start in the financial services industry 39 years ago and was always a source of good will and inspiration throughout our 10 years together at Davidsohn Group and as a colleague and business associate later on. I remember many great stories from our early years of his encouragement and support. I could never thank him enough. I’ll always remember that special twinkle in his eyes. May he rest in peace.
