Dresser, of Hanover, NH, and Laura A. Dresser, of San Francisco, CA. He is also survived by a number of nieces and nephews.

George’s family would like to thank the Long Hill Methodist Church membership for their caring support. We’d also like to thank George’s wonderful neighbors in the Samuel St. neighborhood for the goodwill and kind gestures that they made towards George and Marian during their time on Samuel St. Finally, we’d like to thank the wonderful staff at the Jewish Home for the Elderly for the fantastic care that George received during his stay there.

A memorial service to honor George’s life will be held in the near future. Arrangements by the Redgate - Hennessy Funeral Home, 4 Gorham Place, Trumbull, CT.
