George was a U.S. Army veteran. He held many jobs including: sports editor for the Lancaster New Era, PA Department of Transportation, and Public Relations Director of Park City Mall. He then owned and operated Zellem Printing (includes Copy Print) for 32 years. It was during this time, in 1985, he became legally blind.
