George is survived by his loving wife, of almost 70 years, Lillian, and by his children, Sharie (Elton), James, George Bruce (Doreen) and 7 grandchildren, and 8 great grandchildren.
George was born in Esterhazy Sask in 1929. In 1948, as a young man, he made his way to Vancouver B.C. with the love of his life, Lillian. He took his family from Vancouver, to Cloverdale, settling in Langley for many years, and then finally located to Abbotsford some 10 years ago.
He was the Employee Relations Manager for Empress Foods, Canada Safeway for many years and retired in 1984.

He was a great mentor, a very caring man, he was a lovable rascal with a great sense of humor and he will be dearly missed.
