He then continued his education at DePaul University, earning a Master's in Business. George started his working life in newspaper advertising and teaching in Chicago.

George married Edna Mary Price on February 7, 1953. In 1956 the two of them travelled to Wisconsin to help some friends move. They liked it so much that they decided to stay. George obtained a teaching position at Owen-Withee High School, and there they raised their four children. He taught at O-W for the next 31 years. During his teaching career George continued his passion for education by earning a second Master of Science degree in Education in teaching English from the University of Eau Claire. For the last six years of his life he resided at the Clark County Health Care Center.
