I worked for and with George for over 17 years at Davidson Chevrolet. Though I have only one biological father I have always considered George as one of my father figures in life. A day didn't go by that I didn't learn something from him. Many people had a problem with Georges' personality but it was their loss. I am proud to call him my friend and mentor. My condolences to all of the Werner family and especially Jim, John and Margie.

To Steve Desimone and the Werner family- I too worked for George at Davidson Chevrolet for 9 years. It was my first job out of the service. I applied there to be a mechanic, but he needed a service writer. When he asked me if I thought I could do it, I said of course. I had no idea how to do that job, but he spent the time to teach me how to be good at it. I am forever grateful for the chance he took on me. Like you Steve, I learned so many things from him. When I decided to leave and start my own business, he told me he didn't want to see me go, but that he was very sure that I would do well. Forty two years later, I'm still running that same business. I'd say he taught me well. We talked on the phone and he visited me many times over those 42 years. I'm going to really miss him and his vast knowledge of life and all things mechanical. To all of the Werner family, my thoughts are with you. Chuck Hannoosh, Boxford, MA

I had the pleasure of knowing George Werner, thanks to his son Jim. I've been in the company of George several times and always enjoyed my conversations with him. I especially enjoyed hearing about his flight from Germany after the bombing of Dresden and how he met his wife to be (Anna Marie) on the ship that brought both of them to the USA.
I'll always remember the delicious traditional German goulash that George made and served when I dined with the Werners some years ago. He was a giving and cordial person that I had the pleasure of knowing.
I'll also always remember the wonderful trip that George, Jim and I once took to Cancun, Mexico.
I have been blessed to have known both George and his wife Anna Marie (Mary).
The Werner family are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
