    Dear Kim, Melody and Hugh I am saddened to hear of the loss of your father. I will always remember the gruff persona that he put on although I new how soft he was on the inside. I spent a lot of time with Uncle George when I lived in Hamilton with my mother and was given much advice on many issues if I asked for it or not. I remember him taking the time to watch me play when I played Senior football for Westdale High. He always enjoyed joining in sports with his family that is all except swimming LOL. Rest In Peace Uncle.

    Kim, Melody and Hugh – I am so sorry to hear about Uncle George. I have so many memories about all of you visiting us on the farm, then the house in Canfield, the family get togethers at the hall in Stoney Creek, staying with you while I was at Mohawk. It’s sad, but at the same time I have so many good memories of all the aunts, uncles and families. I am thinking of you and praying for you.
    Love Chris, Allen, Alison, Jon, Sam and Grace-ann

    My sincere condolences go out to you Kim, Melody, Hugh and families. My condolences go out to all the Anderson clan and their extended families. Uncle George will be sadly missed by us all. We had many family gatherings where the Anderson boys were the center of the entertainment. Many weekends in Canfield found us sharing the day with Uncle George, Aunt Gail and family. Some of my fondest memories from my childhood.
    Love Cathy

    So sorry to say goodbye to my brother. We are sad and will miss you George your funny jokes and stories of the old days when you and my late brothers and sister gave mom and dad some worries. You always reminded me and others of the actor Robert Mitchum and laughed when you imitated him. Thank you Kim for always being there for your dad you are a wonderful daughter. God Bless George finally you can rest in peace.
    Love Olla Jim Joyce and families.
