    Friends, family and fire personnel gathered to honor one of their own in Poway Tuesday.

    Peter George, an engineer for the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department, died earlier in March from an aneurysm at his home. He was 48.

    A funeral was held for George at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Poway.

    George joined the SDFD in 1990 and was a fire engineer at Station 42 in Carmel Mountain Ranch when he passed away.

    Those that knew him said he was generous and kind and lived life to its fullest. His last text message he sent was to his son, telling him, “Put in the time studying and you will do well."

    He is survived by his son, Carson; his father, George; his mother, Jo Ann; two brothers, Greg and Jeff; a sister, Jennifer; and his extended family and friends.
