George Procter of High River, Alberta, died at the Peter Lougheed Hospital on July 12th, 2003 in the presence of his two daughters, Wendy and Norene. George died nine months after his wife Gloria and is survived by his two daughters, Wendy and Norene and his son, Don (Bev). George was a truly devoted husband caring for Gloria for many years in her difficult struggle with Alzheimers’s disease. He travelled across this province in every kind of weather to the various facilities to look after her for the year she spent in outside care. He was a wonderful dad and a best friend to his kids. His commitment as father and husband was huge. George’s passion was golf and he played nine holes once or twice most days until two months before his death. He did the crosswords daily and had a brilliant, alert mind to the end.

George’s career was spent in the Canadian Air Force.

George leaves behind three children, three sisters and some dear friends across Canada. Not having any grandchildren but many pets (all three kids have countless animals). George wanted to support his children in their efforts to help animals.
