His greatest treasure has been his grandchildren, Sean Boone (Stephanie), Devin Holden, Jennifer Tram (Benz), Jordan Grubbs, Nicole and Megan Boone, and Colton Boone; and three great grandchildren, Blake George Boone, Zoey and Ashtan.

The family would like to extend a gracious thank you to Dr. Braze and all those at KRMC who showed sincere compassion to the whole family in this time of need.

The family would also like to extend a loving thank you to all those who have expressed their love in our family's time of sorrow, and the sincere outpouring of love that we fell, which we take comfort in at this time. George Boone loved Kingman and his many friends that lived here and the many that are not living here now. He will be dearly missed but forever endure in our hearts and will never be forgotten.
