George passed away at Nanaimo Regional Hospital from cancer, with family nearby. He was born in Auburn, Australia and immigrated to Canada in 1957.

He married Faye Parker in 1965 and celebrated 50 years of marriage last October. He was a kind and loving man and will be sorely missed, a life well lived.
