From Backlund's FB:

"I called George the Animal steel yesterday. His wife answered the phone. I asked if Mr. Steel was there. She said he was not at home. Then she said who are you. I told her my name and she said that he my not come home this time. As tears slowly came to my eyes, I told her that everyone loved GEORGE THE ANIMAL STEEL. HOPE"

Any confirmation?  Other than this post and Wikipedia saying he passed away in a hospice last night, I can't find anything.

Dang it. He was one of my favorites as a young child during the Rock 'N' Wrestling era.

The green tongue and turnbuckle explosions captivated me.

Seemed like a nice and well-educated guy as well.

Gonna miss him turning up on Raw reunion shows.

I will always remember him on I think it was TNT wearing a metal pasta strainer on his head with wires hooked up to it and twitching, and when the doctor asked him to speak he said "how now brown cow".  That was a legit lol moment of my youth.

I feel like he was one of the guys most resented by old school fans as they took this top heel from the '70s who was a major threat to Bruno and turned him into a cuddly cartoon character, the very personification of what Vince turned the WWF into.  But he played the character well and was never really shoved down anyone's throats.  His most memorable '80s feud of course was with Savage, but when it came time for a real high-profile match at WM, he gave way to Steamboat and they just had him interfere.  I remember he briefly came back in the '90s as a member of The Oddities too.  He must've been pretty old by then.
