Email: gnels@stonemor.com

George began his career in funeral service in 1984. He considers this important work to be his calling.

He is compassionate and understanding, and enjoys coming to work every morning. He and his wife live in Gig Harbor. In his non-work hours he delights in being “Pops” to his four grandchildren and spending time in his workshop and garden.
