George had many passions in his life one of which was sports. You could not come in to the house without some kind of sporting event playing on the television. He kept up with every sport you can think of from golf, softball, basketball, to tennis, no matter what the sport was he would watch it. In his early years George grew up in Idaho and lived in Hansen, from 1976-1978 he played basketball and football. George was the point guard for both Junior Varsity and Varsity basketball and he was given the nickname "Taco".  In his later years he played lots of slow pitch softball. He was well known for being competitive and an all around good player so he played on many teams but, one of the main teams was with his close family on "El Sombrero". 

George's other passion was music. He started singing with his brother Jose at the young age of 7. At the age of 8 Jose was given a bajo from their uncle Valentin. Jose was not able to learn to play the bajo so he gave it to George whom learned to play it right away. His love for music began a long career of musicianship, composition and teaching of music. George's career began while playing with various bands starting with La Familia Mexicana, Los Atomicos, Los Rancheritos Del Valle, Irene Marin Y Los Fantasmas, Los Cascaveles, and then his long lived dream to play with his brothers. 

George always had a passion for music however, his biggest dream was to perform on big stages in front of everyone with his two brothers Jose and Juan. His dream was fulfilled when he moved from Idaho back to Texas in 1993, and began to work alongside his brothers and make some of the best music in the industry. 

George's musical composition began in 1984 when Los Chamacos recorded "Linda Morenita" ; this song has been re-composed by many other groups throughout the years, but Los Chamacos were the first to record it with his brother Juan P Moreno. Los Chamacos did another song of George's in 1986 called "Mi Favorita", and in 1994 "No Se Va Borrar" was recorded on the Front and Center album, and in 2012 on the Sabes Bien album the song "Asi Tenia Que Ser" was also recorded. In 2016 George was inducted into the Tejano Roots Hall of Fame class of 2015 for his work, mentorship, and commitment to Tejano Music, he was a huge influence to his little brother Juan P Moreno. George helped mentor Juan in sports, and of course he also taught him musicianship how to play the bajo, and to sing.
