More detail on this person: George died from AIDS. His immune system could not fight an opportunistic fungal infection (cryptococcosis). My name is Linda Buck & I was George's first wife. We were married in 1972 and divorced in 1976. We had no children. He had a daughter in 1975. George had severe PTSD and his life, sorry to say, was a mess. I noticed that Ron Donakowski posted George's death...George often spoke of him with great affection.
