George was a very kind and caring uncle. I have fond memories of my holiday in Canada, and travelling with the family in the boot of the station wagon to Toronto and Niagara Falls. My deepest condolences to all.

Our deepest sympathy to George's family on behalf of Ontario Senior Games Association 55+ District 8. George indeed was a tireless advocate for Seniors. He was on our Board for a number of years, organized our 2013 Regional Games, played in our District Tennis competitions. George was always a gentleman who enjoyed social times and fun. We will miss his comments and encouragement at our next Annual General Meeting.
Rest in Peace, George.
