WOOLLETT, George Newport 1933 – 2018

We are heartbroken to announce the passing of George Woollett on the 24th of July, 2018. He will be sadly missed by his wife Virginia; sons James (Sophie) and Gordon (Linda); grandchildren Michael, Ethan, Lily-Anne, and Matthew; and brother Laurie (Patricia). George is predeceased by his son Michael. George started working with Eldorado Mining and Refining at Port Radium NWT in 1956 and had a long and successful career as a geologist, cofounding Trigg, Woollett and Associates in 1967. George became a mentor to many young geologists. He was a kind, gentle family man who was a role model to all who knew him.

A Celebration of his Life will take place at 1:00 pm on Thursday, Aug. 2, 2018 at Hainstock’s Funeral Home, 9810 – 34 Avenue, Edmonton. In lieu of flowers donations to either the Alzheimer’s Society or to a charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated.

Mrs. Woollett, Jim and Gordon; We were so sorry to hear the passing of Mr. Woollett. I have so many fond memories of bringing rocks from the alley to hear the stories of where the rocks came from and bringing over my play dishes to make him dinner and he would dig up worms to pretend to eat. Except one time he put the worms in the fry pan and forgot and fried bacon up in the morning with the worms. A little extra protein!
I am very fortunate to have such great memories with him. You are all in our thoughts and prayers in this time of sorrow.
Tracy, Ian and Ty Williams (Kindleman)
