A walk down memory lane to the Christmas gatherings, surrounded by family and friends, you could always find Uncle George attending to his guess behind his bar. The giggles and laughs he provided, his loving smile and wittiness provided a very enjoyable evening for all. We’ve said good-bye to often lately. However, it reminds us of how we should be grateful for the time we had with our family while they graced this earth. Always loved, always remembered, dear Uncle George. Jennifer, Mark, Pat, and boys….
Uncle George was a kind man that had a great sense of humor and time for everyone. Another family star has stopped shining but while it burnt it made our way a little brighter and Happier. Sympathies go out to the Family.
Bernard, Lynne and Boys

George was a wonderful neighbour to both Mom & Dad and Darrell & Britt but that was just his nature. He will be missed by many. Our thoughts & prayers are with you & your family.
Reta it is always hard to loose a love one our memory’s are what gets us through I have two that will stand out one is the holiday ornament George gave me a couple of years back and one that I forgot about that came up with one of my visits with you — that when you moved into the house next to mom and dad that I did not like the both of you because you made the Shields move away but I soon got over that because of the wonderful people the both of you are.
