George will always be remembered for his mischievous sense of humor, his devotion and love for his family, and his strong work ethic farming at a very young age and later as a licensed mechanic. George and Alice enjoyed driving and exploring Canada together in their retirement years. During his leisure time he enjoyed tinkering in his shop, curling, watching hockey and was rarely seen without his beloved Toronto Blue Jays hat.


A Catholic service will be held in the summer.
