#26243 - 08/06/04 03:12 PM A member has passed away.....

It is with a great heavy heart that i must announce the passing of our beloved George Lines. I just received the email from his daughter Gina. I am going to cut and paste a copy of it here, but will not include the email address for obvious reasons.


My name is Gina Queral, my father was George Lines. Unfortunately my father
passed away before he was able to show his car for the first time at the
Silver Dollar Car Classic. My father was featured in Issue #27 May 2002

Although this is short notice if there are Sacramento members that knew my
father his service will be Saturday August 7, 2004 at 10:00 a.m. The
service will be held at St. Rose's church on Franklin Blve. in Sacramento

I could also use some help with finding the worth or his car. If there is
anyone within the club that could help me with that it would greatly

If you respond to this e-mail please include something in the Subject Window
indicating that you are from the club as I do not open e-mail if I do not
know who it is from.


Gina L. Queral

I never had the chance to meet George, but I knew him through this wonderful site, and club. He was a great asset to our family, and will be missed greatly by all of us.

I would like if possible for as many members from the area to please attend and express our feelings about George, and send our love and prayers to his family.

God speed George.

My deepest sympathy goes out to George's family and friends. I too was totally shocked when I checked the site after work today. For someone I have never personally met, I still feel a very heartfelt loss myself. To me George was one of the main "answer" men on this site. His knowledge and love of his Monte has helped make this site what it is today. To all of you that knew him personally, I'm sure you have many great things to say about him. I just hope that George realized just how much help he was to many of us here, and we will miss him very much.

Why does it always take the best of us away... frown

George was an asset to this board and he will surely be missed very much....

Every time that I complied the FGMCC garage for our newsletter, I remember saying to myself: "George has a good answer for any question".

My sympathy to all his friends and family!

I really liked George. His name stands out to me as one of the most genuine people. I never met him, but I felt like I knew him well. He did a lot for the club here, in many ways.

He made the removable headlight covers for the Coke Machine for me. He took all that time for me, even though he'd never met me; all the way across the country. I asked him how I could repay him. I believe he said something about just wanting a ride in it someday. frown
