  • Notes 
    • George H. Ruck was a sea captain, had his own fishing business that chartered people from NJ to Hollywood FL - and his wife Lillian was an immigrant from France. He was born to immigrant parents - father from Germany, mother from Austria, and grew up in New Brunswick, NJ in a large family - 7 brothers and 3 sisters! He always had a thing for ship building. He built a couple small boats before acquiring the Thrill. She was a chartered fishing vessel that George captained for many years out of Hollywood, FL. He had a few very exciting catches on his ship - one in particular - an 8 foot gator had attacked several fisherman and swimmers and his vessel was the one to bring it in! George had a degenerative disease that caused his body to shrink as he aged.
