GUTERSON – George Alexander

February 1, 1930 – March 23, 2010

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our father, grandfather, brother and uncle, George Guterson, on Tuesday, March 23, 2010.

George was born into a large family of eleven, eight sisters and two brothers, on February 1, 1930 in Drumheller, Alberta. Family was the single most important thing in his life. He told the family numerous times, that if you don’t have family, you don’t have anything. His greatest love was to be surrounded by family. All his nephews and nieces adored him, because he could party with them, listen to them and teach them, but most importantly, have fun with them.

George leaves behind his daughter and son-in-law, Jeanette and Alan Holt; three sons and daughters-in-law, Tim and Carolyn, Tom and Janet, Peter and Colette; grandchildren, Chris (Jen), Catherine (Ken), Steven, David, Derek, Mathew, Kaitlyn, Nicolaas and Gracie; great granddaughter Maya. He is also survived by three sisters, Dolly Patterson, Fran Jacobson and Mary Campbell, as well as a community of cherished friends, extended family and Knights of Columbus.

George was predeceased by his wife of fifty-eight years, Phyllis, on March 5, 2007, whom he adored and loved with all his heart.

Relatives and friends are invited to Prayers and Tributes at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W.) on Friday, March 26, 2010 at 8:00 p.m.

Funeral Mass will be Celebrated at Sacred Heart Catholic Church (1307 – 14 Street S.W.) on Saturday, March 27, 2010 at 1:00 p.m. A private family Graveside Service to follow on a later date at Eden Brook Memorial Gardens. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of George Guterson, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Telephone: (403) 243-8200.

    To all of George’s family, please know that you’re in Paul’s and my thoughts at this time. I hadn’t heard about his passing until Tim & Wendy sent me the link and I saw that I’d missed the funeral by hours, otherwise I would have been there. George was always full of humor and spunk and he will definitely be missed.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. I was so sorry to hear of George’s passing. He was such a wonderful person and such a family man. I really appreciated that him and Phyllis would always visit with my Mom Dien Dayman and after she passed on with my Aunt Truce Bigelow. Peace be with you George.

    Our sincere condolences on the passing our your Dad, George. George was a magnificient man & father…always showing his pride for his children. He spoke of people in such a respectful manner…a true gentleman. We enjoyed visits with your Dad when we visited our own children in Calgary…I always used to call him “handsome”…cause he was…and that brought a blushing “oh, gosh”…and then a big hug…yes I truly adored your Dad as he had that sweet sparkle in his eye!
    We planned on attending the interment service for your Dad but of recent we are stricken with our own sadness…my brother has recently passed away from a battle with cancer, so we will not be able to make the trip out to the cemetery service. Take care of each other.
