George lived his life through loving and protecting those close to him. He cherished his time with his granddaughter, Kahliya, the light of his life, and taught her songs and all about superheroes. His family was his dearest asset. All of those who knew him, loved him. He spent six seasons with Blood Prison as actor, zone leader, and acting coach. Blood prison became family, and he loved them all. George was an international independent recording artist that found his passion and drive creating music that he loved to share.
