Dear Helen and Tina,

My deepest sympathy to the both of you. George was always very friendly and kind to me. I always enjoyed talking with him when I visited. Also it was very nice to read the condolence written by his former student. I'm sure that you are proud that he touched many other lives. I'm so sorry that I was unable to attend the service, however you all were in my thoughts and prayers. George lived a good life and will be missed! Love, Mike Gergely

To the family of Mr. George Peschock,

Mr. Peschock was my bookkeeping teacher at Westmont Hilltop High School in about 1970. I learned much from him that about business and bookkeeping that positively influenced me throughout life. He was an inspiration to his students. I went on to earn a teaching degree and ultimately earned my doctorate of education..My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time as you grieve the loss of a wonderful man.
