You either loved him or you hated him. George Besta, better known on the island as Big George, succumbed to a heart attack last night.
Big George was co-owner of the 1788 Motel and the Lazy Lizard bar at the Split.
Despite his at times gruff ways, Big George was a generous person, donating to many of the island's projects and causes many times over.
Rest in Peace, Big George.
