George was born and raised in the Alberni Valley and worked in the valley as well. During the years of 1953 – 1958 he was enlisted in the Navy and stationed on the West Coast. It was during this time he met and married Vera and the couple started their family. Before retiring he reached the position of steam engineer for Weyerhauser. He was a loving husband, father and grandfather to his family and when possible liked to spend his time fishing, moose hunting in the BC Interior, wood working and reading John Grisham and McLean's Magazines. He also enjoyed playing floor curling through the Sunshine Club, watching Hockey and doing crosswords. He will be dearly missed by all.
According to George's wishes, a gathering will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, if friends or family so wish, donations in George's memory may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, Port Alberni Unit, 3030B – 3rd Ave, Port Alberni, BC., V9Y 2A5. Stories and condolences may be forwarded to the family by visiting www.chapelofmemories.ca
