    We are so sad and sorry to hear this terrible news about George. He was a wonderful person and his family has already endured so much heartbreak. Our hearts go out to Colette and Ondrea and the rest of his family. God Bless them all.

    So sorry,

    Tom, Vickie and Leah

    Thoughts and prayers for the family..

    Going to be a tough Father/Son team to beat at the Pearly Gates Gun Club. I had the pleasure of shooting with George and Eric, met Ondrea at last years grand and she was just as wonderful .. Better people would be hard to find.

    OMG what terrible news. God bless all of George's family and friends. He was
    such a nice guy. Prayers going out for his wife and daughter and other children, if any. I remember Eric too, also such a kind person and fantastic
    shooter. Heaven gets the best. RIP

    Ondrea has asked that I let all of you know that the Weikum family is planning services for George at the following location:

    Tezak's Home to Celebrate Life

    1211 Plainfield Road

    Joliet, IL 60435

    Services are only tentative at this time; but are being planned for Wednesday visitation and Thursday funeral. I will post the final plans when they become available.
