Cat and brick walk

In the early morning dawn,

He would talk and touch me.

George would often walk with me.


George is gone now.


But the love, the walk, and the touch

Will always be.

I am so sorry to hear this news… My goodness… Best of life was lived by George.

A few times in a lifetime, you meet a guy like George. The guy that starts laughing just about the moment he sees you. I can say the same for myself. I don’t remember when I met George, or even where. Could have been at the nursery or the lumberyard. I do know this: I enjoyed every laugh and conversation I ever had with him. We could yak about plants, politics, Turlock, and on and on. All subjects were easy to talk about with George. I’m pretty blessed with friends, but not sure I can find many equals to George Schumacher. Thanks for sharing him with us Greenery family and Schumacher family. You enabled us each with a bright spot in our day with George. Our condolences to each of you and my wish of peace and smiles to his memory.

We will always think about George with great appreciation and admiration when we step into our backyard as he was the original designer.

I will always have fond memories of George giving us gardening advice back in the seventies, when I knew very little about California plants. What a terrific person to have known!!!

Pickles and I are saddened hearing of the loss of our friend George, he was one of the good guys and we will dearly miss him -Ron Baram

We are grateful for having known George and will fondly remember the many Holiday Open House events that First Street Frame was honored to share with The Greenery. He loved beauty and good design and founded a nursery that is part of what makes Turlock the gem of the valley. He also was the inspiration behind our unique housing development, Casa de Patios, where he was a great next door neighbor. We will miss seeing him water and talking to his cat.
Fondly, The Skooglund Family

George never failed to greet with a smile.
He was a very. genuine man.

George was a well respected man much like his old partner Joe Gallison. I’d say a “Few Good Men”.

The Greenery is still one of locally owned GREAT businesses in a Turlock.

George was always so friendly. He was so helpful when I would ask him questions about space, plants & landscaping. He came out to our ranch (20 miles) to help us with our huge back yard.
The trees. different kinds, & rose bushes. In the whole year it would look good. He will be missed.

I have been to many nurseries in California because I love plants. I have never seen such a beautiful and clean nursery as The Greenery. The Greenery is a tribute to Mr. Schumacher’s sense of beauty and hard work. My husband and I never met Mr. Schumacher, but we thank him and his staff for creating a place where we love to see plants and other beautiful things. I hope heaven is as beautiful as Mr. Schumacher’s nursery.

I am so sorry for your loss. The unconditional love of a friend is such a great joy, and a pet just gives you that love and attention without judgement.
