His children and grandchildren were everything to him. He lived every day to hear from them and of their accomplishments, which he considered more important than his own. Despite a thriving medical practice he was always there for his family making sure all of their needs were provided for. George was a generous, caring and kind man with a good sense of humor. He greatly impacted the community both publicly and in his professional life. He loved his patients, almost considering them family, and they loved him in return.

George was a proud supporter of the State of Israel. George is survived by his son: Sidney Devins and his wife Sally; daughter: Marty Devins Chaplick all of Overland Park, KS; grandchildren: Alison, David and Alexandra Chaplick, Lindsay, Erin, Mackenzie and Skylar Devins; long time caretaker and friend Karen Austin.
