STEPHENSON, George William

1922 – 2014

George Jr. and Janis announce their dad’s final curtain call on Tuesday, June 24, 2014 after missing his loving and beautiful wife, Esther, who passed June 24, 2005 – it was meant to be. Dad was a wonderful father, grandfather, and friend. He leaves behind his son George Jr. (Miriam); daughter Janis; grandchildren Dayna, Montgomery and George; and dog Cody.

“What a wonderful world” filled with more love, passion, and experiences than most could only have dreamed of. We all will remember him from his ability to make people laugh with his contagious smile. George entertained in over 6,000 shows as a singer, guitar and piano player, comedian, and master of ceremony, just to name a few.

A special thanks to the Carewest Colonel Belcher staff for all their support and care to dad in his last few years. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Vet Angels (available at the service).

  1. Sherry Hanson (nee: Hygard) :

    Please accept my condolences on the loss of your Dad.

    He and my Dad, Cliff Hygard, were best friends in their early years and the friendship continued through the years whenever they were in the same place at the same time.

    Some of my earliest memories are of the two of them in their early 30’s playing the guitar, singing and having a wonderful time.

    So sorry for your loss,

    Sherry

    Dear Janis, George, and family
    Your Dad was such a fun loving, humorous man and we have so many wonderful memories of him whether it was being a great neighbour when you were young, playing Halloween pranks on the children, or the many other forms of entertainment, fundraisers, farewells, etc. Who could forget the horse races at the St. Louis?

    Our sincere sympathy to you on your loss.

    Gus & Janis
