Two Shot George passed the day after Christmas. The following was sent by Leapin Otis to the Cowboys who knew him:
"Many of us knew that George battled his illness for several years. George refused to stop shooting right up until the end. George shot the Ukiah match a week before he died. Jerry James, George's son in law, put George's boots on before he passed. George died with his boots on".
"Was George beaten by his illness? No, It was a draw. We are all humbled by George's courage and love of Cowboy Action Shooting in the face of his illness. They don't get much tougher than Two Shot George"
"Happy Trails George, you will be missed. Until we meet again".
PS: There will be a Celebration of Life for George, date to be announced. Cowboy Dress is requested.
