He retired April 20, 1990.

He was a member of St. Stanislaus Catholic Church where he was an usher and helped distribute communion.

George lived on the farm which his grandfather, Paul J. Perszyk settled on 100 years ago, and where his parents lived. He always enjoyed going to auctions and being a collector of many artifacts. George claimed that some would refer to this as being a packrat.
