George was a big man in several ways. He was certainly large physically, but also intellectually and in his concern for others. I have only fond memories of the time I was fortunate to spend with him. The brotherhood of former Amtrak employees is diminished by his passing.

Thanks to Scouting I got to share some time with George ("shorty" in some boy scout circles) over the past couple decades. What I will always remember him for was helping me solve a problem with my dad's railroad retirement. I called him to get some advice and within hours I had a call from the retirement folks to correct everything. helpful! the third point the Scout law. I am sorry to hear of this loss to his family and all who knew him. We will all miss him.

Dear Binns Family,
It was with deep sorrow that I recently learned of the passing of George. I know that words are inadequate at a time like this, but I wanted you to know how very sorry I am for your loss. No words are enough to express the void that has been created by the loss of such a wonderful person who was not only important to all of you but also to his extended industry family. Please accept my most heartfelt sympathies. God bless and comfort you.

I am terribly saddened to hear of George's passing. George took a chance on hiring me into Amtrak and gave me my start in the railroad industry. I still remember my first interview with him and his big laugh! He was a great mentor and supervisor. I am extremely fortunate to have had him as a guide through the early years of my career. My deepest condolences to the Binns Family.

Lois and I grieve with you. Your loss is great, but our God is greater still. I pray the "peace of God which passeth all understanding", "and the God of all comfort" will be your fortress in the weeks and months ahead. I worked for George in the 1990's while at Amtrak. He was the best boss I ever worked for.; but more than a boss, he was a friend. I miss that Jolly Old Saint Nick laugh of his. Always the optimist, even in the face of losing his beloved young daughter, he was always a joy and encouragement to be near.

Dear Binns family,

We're so sorry for your loss! I worked with George at Amtrak and will always remember his stories and jokes anytime he came down to the D.C. office. He was a special person who lit up the office with his energy anytime he came in and I will always cherish the short time I got to spend with him. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers!

Dear Bev & Austin,
We are so sorry and saddened to hear about George's passing. George was such a kind, gracious, genuine person... and always smiling. Although we lost touch over the years, Sean and I will cherish all of the memories we made together at Radnor and other events and will never forget George's warm smile and zest for life.
