Chaffin, George (Bud) Curtis

George Curtis Chaffin, beloved husband of Carole Chaffin of Calgary, passed away on Monday, January 19, 2009, after a brief battle with cancer, at the age of 74 years. Bud served for the Canadian military from 1951 – 1954 as a Trooper in A Squadron of the Lord Strathcona’s Horse R.C. in M8 armoured cars patrolling the demilitarized zone in Korea. Bud later served on the Calgary Fire Department for ten years and was honoured by the St. John’s Ambulance Association in 1964 and awarded a “Life Saving Certificate” for his effort in saving the life of a fellow firefighter. Bud went on to a career in the trucking industry where he worked for more than four decades. After retirement, Bud was a proud member of the Korean Veteran’s Association where he served as past President of Calgary’s Branch #285 ensuring the recognition of all those in Calgary who served for Canada.  Bud is survived by his wife of nearly fifty-one years Carole Chaffin; their three children; and four grandchildren, all of Calgary. Of the many lives he touched, he will be dearly missed by all, especially by his loving family.A Private Service was held. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.comIn living memory of George Chaffin, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Fish Creek Chapel, 14441 BANNISTER ROAD S.E. Telephone: (403) 256-9575.
