Donate Life Float: 2016 Floragraph Honoree - George Dennis Vargas

Donate Life Float

George was a simple and hard-working man who loved talking and making new friends. He always had a kind word or a simple ‘hello, how are you,’ to those walking down the street. His family nicknamed him “The Town’s Newspaper,” because he knew what was going on around town before they could tell him. On July 5, 2009 the lives of his family were turned upside down when George was a victim of a homicide. George's heart was gratefully received by a man in Galveston, TX. George's sister, Alice, said, "Donation is a miracle that allows that person to continue living."
