If he was still alive, he would be 105 years old. We should check to see if he is still alive... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 23:04, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
The article was created in 2008, using the phrase: "George Washington was...". WP:BLP says that people under age 115 are to presumed living. Normally, the lede should be changed to "is", pending verification, but I'm uncomfortable doing that, as the subject seems to have been deceased by the time this article was created. I'll see if I can find anything. Joefromrandb (talk) 19:40, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
