George showed us how to carry a personal cross without complaint. I first remember George working at the Cove on North Water Street in 1970 and was in awe. George has been an inspiration to so many who grew up in the area and to those who passed thru Kent. Thank you George! God bless you, enjoy your heavenly rewards.
My deepest sympathies to the Condos family. Thank you George, for making us all better people
George you were such an inspiration. I was one that was down town Kent for Thursday, Friday, and Sat in the late 70's. And we could always count on seeing you. Even thou we never personally met there wasnt a time that when we went to the Loft or Filthy's that you didn't see George. And if you didn't see him he was someone that that you looked for. Till this day when we drove through Kent we always ckecked the side walks for George. He always seemed to show up. God Bless you George and you will be missed
Free at last Georgie, Free at last. He ie with you now and evermore.
Well said, Jim
"I will always remember Brother George for his tenacity to get where he needed to go by his 'COURAGE', 'STRENGTH' and sometimes 'PURE WILLPOWER'. He was and is an inspiration to 'anyone' whom believes, that they can't go one step further in life. God Bless you, Georgie Condos and, THANK YOU for giving us 'YOUR' strength of mind.
