Before dying in 1972, George wrote a series of heartfelt autobiographical notes about the influential people and events of his life.

He wrote an autobiography

I was born on Aug. 15, 1895, in New York City, between 42nd St. and 43rd St. on Third Ave. on the 5th floor of a brick tenement house. The first thing I remember was the assassination of Pres. William McKinley in 1901, because at that time the windows had the President's picture draped in black bunting, in mourning for our dear President. I was about 5 or 6 yrs old.

I had a wonderful father and mother. My father had all my clothes made to order at Browning, King & Co. My father was a great sports fan. He loved prize fights and baseball games. In fact I was with him when he caught his death of cold which devolved into consumption. He was sick for quite a while at home. We were living at 134th St. in Harlem. I was so small, I was lifted up to the casket to kiss my father good-bye. . . .more

Andrew Irving Rematore's father, a Connecticut banker, wore a boutonniere -- a red rose -- every workday. When he grew up, the son spent as much time as he could each weekend working in his San Jose garden perfecting 21 rose bushes. They were his lasting tribute to his parent and role model." He used to tell us his father was the brightest person he ever knew," said Mr. Rematore's daughter, Laurel. But to four decades of students at Santa Clara University, Mr. Rematore was the brilliant one, the Spanish and linguistics professor who started SCU's language lab, the teacher many of them called a "Renaissance man" because he knew and could expound seemingly on any given topic. . .full obituary
