George Matthews passed away last night after a long battle with cancer. He had his last Nuke job as a house tech at Wolf Creek, previously he had "rent-a-teched" many places.

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. George was a big help at the plant when I worked at Wolf Creek.

I worked with George the first time at Byron in 1985 and the last time at Wolf Creek in 2008.  He was always unique and will be missed.

George was a very close friend of mine. He took me under his wing back in 1997 and taught me how to be a really good RP Tech. Then in 2007, I had the pleasure of being a ouse tech with him at Wolf Creek. My mother and my ex-wife used to babysit his youngest daughter. I spoke to him about a week before he passed. I was planning a trip to go see him, but I never got the chance. George was a mentor and a really good friend. He was the closest thing to an older brother I've ever had. My heart is broken, but I know he isnt suffering anymore.

Well, Dang!  Worked with George at Perry during the start-up and warranty run.  A great guy to have on shift as he would work hard and keep things light.  I remember him passing me (I was doing 90 ) on a state highway going south one evening.  Passed me like I was standing still. RIP George.
