Remembering George

Wanted to take a minute to remember one of Branham Electric’s dearest friends, George Thess. George past away a year ago today. George was one of the first individuals we met when we joined the IEC back in 1993. George helped us secure our first IEC apprentice. George urged use to attend our first IEC National Legislative Conference in Old Town Alexandria, VA. George was a very close friend. His wife Pat is still a dear friend. Their son George III worked at Branham Electric for several years.

George loved life. He was always ready for a good argument, did whatever he promised, would give you the shirt off his back, and kept everything he was every given – and I mean everything. George loved a good golf game, fishing, his animals, his family and friends. We still remember him dropping by to chat and see how life was treating us. We love you George and miss you dearly!
