George faithfully completed a mission in the Eastern States and then served honorably in the U.S. Army Air Force in World War II, where he was an LDS servicemen's group leader in Italy. On June 27, 1947, George married Isabel Hales in the Salt Lake Temple. During their 62 years of marriage, they ended each night with a prayer, a kiss and an "I love you." George and Isabel brought into their hearts and home five sons, two daughters, six daughters-in-law, two sons-in-law, 32 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. He cherished and loved each one of them, and they and the gospel of Jesus Christ were his greatest source of joy and happiness. After graduating from BYU, George worked for Beneficial Life Insurance Company, where he eventually served as vice-president. Here, he formed life-time associations and was loved and respected by his work associates. At the age of 46, George, with Isabel and their family, was called to preside over the Central British Mission, where he had the opportunity to serve with 550 missionaries and the wonderful British saints.
