Mark and Eric: With great sadness and affection we think of the lifetime of George and all the grand times we spent together both at the CN and after. Your mum and dad were at our wedding 57 years ago and we were in touch at least twice a year but mostly during the Christmas season with letters of family progress included in our cards. His patience and moral guidance helped me in my early days in the survey world. His impatience trying to teach me to play the accordion in Gillam was a real test to his tolerance of bad musical chords. There are so many hunting, golfing, travel stories to recall that there could be a grand book written about your dad's high standards and social guidelines. I hope you will be in touch later on so we can share a few of these tales of truly remarkable man that affected the way we have handled our lives.

A friend of mine who knew George and his sister and his mum and dad in Baldur, now lives here in Qualicum Beach. Don Levreault and Zelma pass on their condolences. they do not have a computer and wish to be mentioned Saturday if you have time.

I had the honor of having Mr. Anderson as an instructor at what was then known as Red River Community College. A gentleman and great teacher.

My husband Bryan Dreger worked with George for many years and I know he enjoyed his time working with him at Red River College. They were both very committed to education and I know made a difference for may students lives. My family and I also wanted to say how touched we were to see that donations suggestion to the Bryan Dreger Endowment Fund. My prayers and sympathy are with George’s family during this time.

Eric, Mark and Jillian, Lynell

I send you my deepest sympathies on the loss of your Dad. Uncle George was such a great guy. He always had a kind word or a fun joke to share. I remember his blue eyes always twinkling with life and humour. I remember his deep voice, and how it sort of rumbled. He and my dad were always sharing a joke about something. The best memories of Uncle George though are of him playing the piano in the kitchen of our old house on the highway. The house would be filled with his music. He played so effortlessly and with such joy. I hope your memories of him will bring you comfort in the coming days and weeks. I send you all much love.
Trish (Patty) Barr-Mendis and the Mendis family (Rabin, Sherwood and Randall)
