I am so privileged to have met George Houser, his smile was so infectious and his laugh made my day. He was so proud at our Veteran's Day celebrations and always wore his uniform. Teresa, prayers to you and your family, I know the North Woods Village family will miss him dearly. I miss him already. I will be there on Tuesday to pay my respects to this wonderful man!

I met George at Northwoods Village Memory Care Facility where my wife is a resident
We hit it off from the start, as he was a former Marine and I was a Marine corpsman with the 3rd. Marine Division, and I called him Marine , and he called me Doc. I will miss him dearly and proud to have known George so briefly. There's no doubt that this Marine is guarding the street's of Heaven.and his God, whom He served so well.
I met his daughter and to her, and his loving family , your all in my thoughts and prayers, and I'm so sorry for your loss .
Simper Fi George.
