    To George’s family, I was a classmate of George’s from the 8th grade on and always found him to be a wonderful person. His stewardship with the Revere Fire Dept. reflected credit upon himself and the city he served so well. Rest in peace!

    Taglieri Family,
    I am so terribly sorry for your loss of George. He was such a friendly man to talk to on Monday nights at the Saugus Bowling League in Wakefield. I will surely miss him as will the whole league I’m sure. My sincere sympathy to Yvonne and the whole family.

    Yvonne and family,

    I am so sorry for your loss. “Deputy Tag” was one of a kind. I learned so much from him, and I’m sure everyone on the RFD would say the same. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. George was a wonderful man.
