Dear Bill and Brenda:
Mike and I were so sorry to hear of George's passing. He was by far the best neighbour one could hope for. Kind, caring and always willing to share his vast knowledge when we needed assistance with anything. He and Barb were a lovely couple who's door was always open. We were blessed to have known them and will remember them with fondness always.
Sending our deepest condolences.

George was a great guy; he and Barb lived in many different communities in Ontario as they moved around with George's work. He loved the outdoors and took many trips in earlier years with the camper. He was a valued choir member at St. Hilary's Anglican for many years and had acquired his interest in singing at an early age. Good memories of Haliburton Civic Holiday choir weekends. He was a regular member of the RUM group (Retired Underemployed Men) at St. Hilary's. Enjoyed his stories of working and teaching in Malawi. We are certain that the last year has been a challenge after Barb's death. Condolences to Bill and family. John & Beth.

We have fond memories of times spent with both George and Barb. George was great in helping understand vehicle idiosyncrasies. So knowledgeable. Also very helpful on a number of occasions as a "taxi driver" either to the airport or cottage.
Praying that God will place his loving and comforting arms around Bill and Brenda & each of the extended family members as they grieve their loss.
