OBITUARY

George Andrew Thibideau

September 19, 1944May 21, 2020

With his family by his side, George entered final rest after a courageous eleven-year battle against cancer. Beloved husband of Adeline for 51 years. Loving father of Holly (Joe) Michael, Lee (Laura) and Erin. Proud grandfather of Sam, Ben, Dexter, Sullivan and Ellie. George was born and raised in Bathurst, New Brunswick. As a young man he left his home town and moved to Oshawa, Ontario, where he raised his family and embarked on a 35 year career with the Toronto Star in circulation sales. Upon retirement George enjoyed a number of pursuits, but was most proud to serve as Grand Knight (1999-2001) with the Knights of Columbus St. Joseph the Worker Council 9989 and was a fourth degree member of the Monsignor Bench Assembly (0878) in Oshawa. He enjoyed his bike and headed out most mornings for a 25 km ride. George and Adeline appreciated the opportunity to travel together, exploring new destinations near and far. But most of all, George enjoyed the simple pleasures of reading his newspaper, watching the Toronto Blue Jays or Toronto Maple Leafs from his recliner, long car drives, coffee at a nearby Tim’s, or sitting on the back yard swing, Adeline always by his side. Predeceased by his parents Lee and Leona and siblings Bernie, Danny, and Bonnie. George is survived by his sisters Sue and Paula, and brothers Bill (Patricia), Ray(Judi), and Don (Carol).

Dear Adeline and family..... Please accept my most sincere sympathy. On a more pleasant note, a few words of thanks for all the great memories of your impromptu hospitality. Those times when Pat (deceased July 10, 2003...cancer) and I dropped by, unannounced, with our 4 (hungry) kids.... what happy times! When I told our daughter George had passed away, she immediately said.... 'Holly! the Christmas baby!' I also happily remember those Star get-away rewards with you both.... some of those more memorable (thanks to George) than others.
He is kindly remembered. Be well. Affectionately, Mary Collins
