Our sincere condolences sent to the Yates and Kuepfer Family. George has been a friend for 40 years and we have many many wonderful memories of George throughout the years.
We didn't see much of each other when George and Suzie decided to follow their dream of RVing but kept in touch through social media. We were so happy for them. The Adventures were awesome to follow along on their blog which was a great way to share the excitement of the travels.
George will truly be missed as he was considered Family and his daughter Jessie called me Auntie Karen and still does and that means the world to me. Sending special hugs to you Jessie and of course to you also Suzie as you and George sure made a beautiful happy couple. Like he said at our last visit with you guys at the hospice ...you and he are made for each and got along perfect and enjoyed the same things which made your marriage work. May God comfort you Suzie during the sad loss of your husband and partner in life. Thinking of of Kim, Ken and their families also and sending hugs and prayers to you all during this sad loss of such an iconic man. His smiling face will never be forgotten ❤🙏❤

Suzie and family - I wanted to convey my sincere sympathies to you and your family. I always enjoyed meeting George on my walk in Plattsville and chatting for a few minutes. I am visiting my son in Australia at the present but wanted you to know that I am thinking about you and your families at this sad time. Doris Glendinning

You don’t know me, but I’ve spent many wonderful hours reading your blog George and Suzie, and traveling right along with you to many beautiful places, admiring your optimism and kindness, caring for each other, and salivating over your grilled goodies. I’m so sad that his illness took George so quickly and will have his family in my prayers. I hope you’ll keep us updated from time to time, Suzie! What a life well lived!
