Grew up down the road from Wade and he was friends with my nephew, Dean Satterfield who has also passed. Prayers for the family at this difficult time.

I've known George Jr for a number of years at NNSY, we've worked together and he eventually worked for me when I made supervisor on sub repair. He was very resourceful, always willing to help wherever and whenever he could. I just found out about his passing, today and I was shocked to hear from friends. My thoughts and prayers are with the families. He will be greatly missed. I will miss his smiles and helpful attitude that helped me tremendously during our time on the boats. I've also worked with his Dad, whom I was introduced to as "Big Pitt." His Dad was a gentle giant and pleasure to work with.
