I have just found out from a mutual friend of the passing of my good friend George Voightmann. Wow, the stories I could tell you about George and I out on the train show circuit when we would do shows together. I met George in 1989 at a Union Pacific Historical Society Meet where he first started selling his videos. We became VERY fast friends and the following winter, he invited me out to visit the Cheyenne roundhouse for a personal tour and to meet the steam crew. I was in Heaven. We started doing shows together. He was selling videos. I was selling railroad books and anything else railroad related I could get me hands on. George had a LOT of friends in the show circuit. EVERYBODY knew George and George knew everybody. Our favorite show to do together was 'Trainfest" in Milwaukee over Veteran's day in November. We ALWAYS had a blast. He was THE kindest and most giving person I have ever met. Unfortunately, George's health has started to suffer as well as my own and we drifted apart. The economy went south, too and his business suffered. I had tried to contact him several times and finally got a letter from Sharon on what going on with his health. That was several years ago and I hadn't talked to him since. I'll miss him immensely. He was the older brother I never had. Thank you for everything, George. I'll see you there.

Sharon and Family, I am saddened by George's passing. I will always remember him as a truly nice guy. We first met at the Elmhurst Model Railroad Club when he would come in at all sort of strange times because of his truck driving job. In later years I would see him every other week or so at one of the train shows with his massive display of videos. I think he truly loved doing the shows and always seemed to be in a good mood. He was always kind and supportive, which I can not say was common among train show exhibitors. I shall miss George as he was always a class act. While I am sure his passing is difficult on you, I hope you can take solace in knowing George will be remembered for his many acts of kindness.
