Sadly, but peacefully, George passed away on Wednesday, December 12, 2007, after a courageous battle with cancer at the age of 78 years.
George was an amazing man! He will forever be remembered as a very loving, kind, courageous and extremely smart man whom everyone loved. George was born in Innisfail, AB and he became a Professional Engineer, working for Imperial Oil for thirty-five years before retiring in 1987. George loved to be with his family and friends, travel, read, watch hockey and baseball; play bridge with his buddies either at his house or at the Royal Canadian Legion and he loved to sit by a campfire. George was also very dedicated to charitable donations, as he was always thinking of others. George, you will be missed so deeply but you have left us with many wonderful memories ~ thank you.
George will be lovingly remembered by his family to whom he devoted his life: Sherry Parsons (Mike), Patti Dwyer (Bob), Paula Howe (Pete), Rob Stewart (Muriel), Deb Dever (Mike), Karen Herle (Darin), Shelley Steele (Doug) and Tania Baldwin (Mike), and his dear sister Mary (Carl). He also leaves behind his grandchildren Chris, Jeremy, Travis, Megan, Liz, John, Kody, Sarah, Madison, Cassidy, Alexa, Jared, Jack, Emma and Devon, as well as great-grandchildren. George leaves behind numerous other family members and friends whom he loved dearly. George has now joined his late wife Dorothy (his “L’il Darlin”.) up in heaven. George was also predeceased by his parents Arthur and Kathleen, his brother James, sister-in-law Margaret and his nephew John.
