It is with great sadness that I am passing on that Wee George, present manager of Honey Ko's has committed (suicide). (I have been informed by George Brown and Damien that the autopsy revealed that he died of a heart attack and that the initial suspicion of suicide was discounted) I am very pleased to be able to correct that initial information sent to me). George has been a legend in this town for many years and is a friend to many. I have known him for quite a few years and the stories about him and his life are too numerous to mention. On this bright sunny Saturday a dark cloud has taken over my mood. I liked the man.
I do not, at this time have any further details. I am very saddened at this news as are the many people who knew him. He is a legend. Many, many people will miss him.
ADDITIONAL NEWS: On Wed at 3 PM (Tomorrow) at the Hang Out there will be a gathering of "Friends of George" where people can share their stories and bid a good friend farewell.
George is currently laid out at the Galang Funeral Parlor in Dau.
