Their approach to coaching was 3-pronged. They taught sportsmanship, discipline, and teamwork and did it in different ways. According to one former player, “Bill would pat you on the back and George would kick you in the butt”. Bill and George were excellent communicators and superb motivators of young men and these two attributes were the major reasons for the success of their teams. As impressive as the records on the field were, the life lessons they taught their players were equally impressive.

He umpired for 5 years, was Kent County convenor for 10 years, served on the Provincial Executive for 10 years, and was President of the Chatham and District Fastball League which became the Kent County Fastball League for 20 years.

George died in 2014 at the age of 86.
