It is with great sorrow to announce the passing of George Alvin Kluthe at the age of 85. George’s last days were spent at Roozen Family Hospice Centre surrounded by family until his final resting date on January 26, 2023 from Pancreatic Cancer.

George was a farmer and loved country life, He farmed his land and raised animals for most of his life. After retiring, you would often see him driving his pick-up truck down the country roads to watch others harvesting or looking for things he could hunt. He loved to be in his shop fixing or restoring things.
He will be remembered as a man who loved life, family, and friends. Everyone who has met George will have a special memory of the time they spent together as he always left people feeling better about themselves and that they mattered. He was funny, witty and had a joke or two up his sleeve to make you laugh when you least expected it.
George was the strong and stoic pillar for our family, friends and community.
May he rest forever in peace.
