George grew up in a working-class family in Alton, Ill. His father was an aircraft mechanic and his mother worked at a dry cleaners. His uncle was in the steel industry and his grandfather worked in manufacturing. At a young age, George learned the value of hard work, which he put to use in college and in his career.
Like many workers in the 1950s and 1960s, George’s parents and relatives were exposed to asbestos at their jobs and unknowingly carried it home on their clothing. This in turn exposed George and other family members who came into contact with them. As a young man, George also worked, at times, in industry and was further exposed to asbestos at his jobsite.
It was not until decades later that George began to suffer the ill effects of his asbestos exposure. Shortness of breath was a precursor to his diagnosis of pleural mesothelioma.Why File a Mesothelioma Lawsuit
