On February 4, 2023, with his wife and children by his side, George passed away at the Health Sciences Centre. A husband, father, brother, and uncle, who was deeply loved.
George was predeceased by his parents, Leonard and Elva.
He is lovingly remembered by his wife Pearl, his daughter Debbie, his son Lindsay, sister Joan (John) and brother Gordon (Jan) and his cousins, nephews and nieces.
George grew up on the family dairy farm in the area of Templeton and McPhillips in Winnipeg, he wore many hats throughout his life . . . A cowboy, police officer, truck driver, warehouse worker and shuttle driver. After retirement, he enjoyed the outdoors, visiting with family and talking with our many wonderful neighbors. He will be remembered for his positive attitude, friendly nature, love of music, and feeding his wild birds.
We wish to thank the staff at the Health Science Centre for the attentive and compassionate care.
