Joyce, George, Dawn and the Harvanek family,
Although the announcement traveled slow to Indianapolis, the news of my teammate and fraternity brother's passing is still so sad. We were teammates on the 1966 team at then, WSU-Whitewater that made the trip to Tulsa for the bowl game and later, after George pledged, we shared another bond of friendship, being brothers of Phi Chi Epsilon fraternity. On a remembrance plaque presented to each of us on that team and hanging on the wall next to where I am typing, #56 "Crow" as he was nicknamed, stands proud as part of that great group of guys. As the tears begin to fade and In the days, months and years to come, just remember all the great times shared as family and I will remember a friend, teammate, fraternity brother and fellow member of the Warhawk family. May George rest in peace.

To the family of my roommate and frat brother, its a personal loss to me. We grew as men together at UWW. I'm sorry that I was unable to maintain a relationship and it became more difficult with the family move to Mosinee. My sincere condolences to the family.
