We remember George as a caring mentor, enthusiastic coach, passionate champion, and most of all a faithful friend. He sought after and brought forth the potential in everyone and treated all like family. He has and will always be in our thoughts and prayers.
I enjoyed immense pleasure working for George Lentz while employed at Bell Laboratories in North Andover. His sense of duty, kindness and personal integrity were examples all who came in contact with him strove to emulate. Rest in peace George Lentz. Michael Wheeler Haverhill, Massachusetts
