R.I.P. George

If you've been around the Arlington music scene for awhile, there's a good chance you ran into George Stender at least a couple of times. "George," as most of people knew him, frequented many of the music venues in downtown Arlington, staying out surprising late, and going out surprisingly often, and was never afraid to show his appreciation for a good song. He a long-time kitchen employee at Whitey's in Arlington.

Sadly, he passed away on April 18, 2010. A memorial service for George Stender will be held at 6pm today, Wednesday, May 19th at the Bloss Memorial Free Will Baptist Church, at 716 North Barton Street in Arlington.
