With deep sadness we announce that George Andrew Rathgeber passed away on Saturday, April 23, 2005 at the age of 79 years.
George cherished his family who will lovingly remember him – his wife Joyce who was by his side for fifty-four years; his son and daughter-in-law, Bill and Shelagh; and three grandsons, Jason of Victoria, BC, and Zak and Travis (Pat) of Calgary. He is also survived by his much-loved sister Mary Steffan of Melville, SK; as well as numerous in-laws, nieces, nephews, and a host of friends.
God saw you getting tired
A cure was not to be
So He put his arms around you
And whispered “Come to Me”
