George’s nephew Ted was a civic leader in Salida. He was instrumental in keeping a hospital open in Salida. He spearheaded the efforts to purchase the Denver & Rio Grande Hospital from the railroad. Ted was also one of the founders of FIBArk. He has the special distinction of being the Salida Chamber of Commerce’s first ‘Man of the Year.’
