George “Buddy” loved to walk along the sidewalks of Fort Mitchell. If you took a drive in Fort Mitchell, seeing George “Buddy” walking the Fort Mitchell neighborhood was a guarantee! He never married or had children but he was a generous uncle giving the best gifts to my children “money” on their special occasions. Thanks for being a wonderful Uncle and Godfather to my little brother Danny!
Say hi to Mom and Dad for me!
Rest in Peace Connie
To the Niehaus Family,
My deepest sympathy on your loss. May George rest easy in the arms of Jesus and his eternal rest be a peaceful one, He will be missed by so many. May your memories bring you comfort at this difficult time.
George was both my 6th and 7th grade instructor at Saint Augustine School. George’s mentorship and love of scholarship and athletics was greatly appreciated by his pupils.
I am so sorry to hear about George’s passing. I worked with him for many years at the Covington Library. When I was going through the RCIA program at church he gave me his thoughts on what I was learning. He will be missed. My condolences to the entire family.
For my uncle George;
“Uno Ab Alto” a US Air Force Motto (One over all) and “Sic Itur Ad Astra” (such is the pathway to the stars). While I moved out of the tri-state area, I always enjoyed discussing history with him whenever I saw him on a return visit. When I left so many years ago, he gave me his Air Force overcoat, a heartfelt gesture. I even have a pair of Air Force cuff-links. George, from the Greek Georgos, aptly named and a heart of gold. Your nephew Thomas
