Please accept our sincere condolences on the loss of George. He was an active member of our car club back in the day, always pitching in and a friend to everyone he met. He will be missed. We hold the Waring families in our prayers.

Uncle George was one of the finest men I have ever known. Always happy. Always funny. I thought him so often even though I left Chicago, but I will always love him and his spinning eyes and wiggling ears. Rest easy, my friend. You are so loved.

My uncle George. He lived next store to me as I was growing up. He took me to the beach, road trips to St Germain WI ( sorry about the cookies crumbs in your Catalina convertable). He own a funny car named the Snoopy Special!
He was Marine in the Vietnam War, one of the first to go in, but he never talked about it. He was a kind soul, he would give you his last dollar if you needed it. He always had a kind word and a smile to share.
He had a booth named after him at a restaurant “The Candy Man George Waring” in Duluth MN.
He was younger than my oldest cousin.
And all I have of left of him are my memories, they bring a smile to my face and tears to my eyes and heart! I love you Uncle George, thank you for being my uncle!

First of all my condolences to you, Larissa and your family for the passing of your dad! I only have positive happy times in my memory of George because he was just that kind of a guy brought out the good in everybody he touched, and they were mini! We had many good fun times together when we worked out of the area for months at a time. I and my family will all miss him, but will never never forget his smiles and bags of candy and just being around him so very very sad. Just think of the good times as there were many many of them, we having known him, and been around him made us better people !!🌞🌞🌞🥲🥲

I am so sorry to learn of George’s passing. He and I go back to our days in Duluth and I knew him to be a most generous, kind, and gentle man. We called him the Candy Man for his bountiful and endless supply of candy that he shared, along with his smiles and sunshine. Condolences to your family. He loved you all dearly.

George was a very nice man, a good neighbor, and guardian of the block when he was able. He was well respected and alway respectful. We have missed George in recent years due to his long illness, but always remember the kind and caring man he was. Condolences to his family.
