It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Dr. George Kirchner, D.D.S. A long time member of the Lehigh Valley (Pennsylvania) ISOA chapter, Dr. Kirchner passed on April 20, 2019 (online obituary). George served the Lehigh Valley, PA, NISOA chapter for many years, as both an active member and a chapter officer, until his passing. He was a long time NISOA National Referee and earned emeritus status.
George would never say no to any request for his help, both on the field and off. He was a true gentleman and ally to us all. George always spoke kind words to all even in the most difficult situations and did so with a beaming smile. His positive demeanor and enjoyment of, literally everything, will be sorely missed by all those who ever met him, and especially those who were honored to have been his friend.
