In the period from 1951-1956, city directories show him living in the Village of Lewiston, NY and working as a warehouseman for a company called Niagara Furniture.

The 1959 city directory says he is a state employee, and the 1960 directory says he is an equipment operator.

I also found a 1962 court case where he was a witness, and his profession is listed as a patrolman for the Village of Lewiston, or at the very least he had been in 1959, the year of the incident in the court case.

This was the only reference I could find to a police career, so can't independently confirm.

NOTE: The Village of Lewiston is a historic village in the western part of the town of Lewiston.

(Interesting side note: his son, George Jr., was a military policeman in the Army, and also served the village of Lewiston in a variety of positions from 1967-2003.)

Died February 26, 1982.
