Condolence From: Alan Lavorico
Condolence: Many times we wait until a friend has died to tell the world what a wonderful person they were, and I'm just as guilty as the next person.
I met George Vessey in the Navy. We were hospital corpsman at Balboa Naval Hospital. Right away he made me feel welcomed and made himself available to help me become adjusted to the unit. I learned a lot from George. What I learned was patience, to be innovative and always help the next guy. What I learned helped my throughout my enlistment and life. I would always think of George when I came upon a challenging moment. George was selfless and was there whenever you needed him. George welcomed you in to his life, and his family. I especially remember him as a devoted and loving father to his daughter Rachelle. Now is my hope is the he rests in peace knowing he did all that he could and that his children will be fine. When we love people it's comforting to know that they will always be with us in out hearts.
Rest in peach brother.

Condolence From: Timothy W. Bauer
Condolence: George was a most beloved friend, though, regrettably I didn’t see him after I left San Diego in 1973. We were brother Navy Corpsmen on 9-1N, CCU, Balboa Naval Hospital through all of 1972. George was generous & talented with his time, friendship, & auto mechanical genius. He replaced the exhaust manifold on my car when I was broke & didn’t even know what an exhaust manifold is. We talked several times on the phone but never got together. I am very sorry about that. I remember him being a doting young Daddy to his baby girl, Rachelle. I called him several times over the last two years & left messages but my calls were not returned. Clearly my dear old friend had his health issues. I wish he’d told me, as I’d have dropped what I was doing and hurried to see him. George was a very brilliant & energetic 20 yr old and as I planned to call him again tomorrow, I saw his obituary online. It hit me HARD, as George Vessey I thought, would live forever.
