Kenneth George Mains
March 25, 1938 / July 28, 2013
It is with sadness that we announce the
sudden passing of our beloved husband,
father and papa George.
George the youngest of a family of
fi ve was born in Brandon, Manitoba
to Harold & Elma Mains on March 25,
1938. He was pre-deceased by Betty,
his loving wife of 52 years. He will be
truly missed by his daughters Cindy
(Roy), Sandra (Greg) and grandchildren
Selina & Ian, sister Betty, cousins
and many nieces and nephews.
George and Betty moved the family from
Winnipeg to BC in 1968, fi rst living in Langley then moving to Aldergrove, settling on the farm in 1978. George was employed as a service advisor, working both at Eagle Ford and Lansdowne Pontiac until his retirement in the late 1990’s. Retirement allowed him to pursue his true passion being
a farmer full time. Driving his tractor, making hay, cow watching,
sitting at the duck pond watching his “creatures” claiming it was
better than anything on tv. On Saturdays he would put on his “going
to town hat” and head to the auction often followed by lunch at
the Otter Co-Op.
George had a quick wit, a great sense of humour and loved a good prank. Life will be a little less fun without him.
The family invite all those who knew George to join them in celebrating his life at the place he loved the most, the family farm, 25437 68th Ave., Aldergrove on Sunday, August 11th, 2013 at 1 pm.
