On September 9th, 2020 at 11:55am George Francis Siver died, at the age of 94. Our father was a WWII Veteran and was last of the six founding members of the Powerhouse Theatre in Vernon. George loved, the theatre, and build many sets and had humorous stories to tell about the time he played the Bartender in “Love Rides the Rails”. He was an excellent dancer, and frequently tore up the dance floor at Legion dances well into his 80’, he loved music and musicals, and was an avid fan of the Victoria Shamrocks, the Royals and the Grizzlies. George loved a good story and had many tales to tell which, like a fine wine, improved with the telling. He had a wonderful mischievous sense of humour. He is lovingly survived by his children; Bryan, Dale, wife Tina and their son Scott, Beverley, Lorrie, and her partner Ross Carriere. George will be sorely missed by his many friends and family.

Uncle George, I first met you just prior to your marriage to Aunt Nance. It was 1952, I was 5, you were a young handsome and dashing ex sailor. Who like many was trying to pave his way into a new career and a changed world. In my little conservative world you came and burst all the norms with your "joie de vivre", wit & charm. You took away my auntie only to return again a few years later in Vernon managing the Simpson Sears store. As I grew and was able to travel I found myself one summer at your place. There I was happily reunited with my aunt and a few cousins! That short stay was repeated at other times and they were very special indeed. But as life ordain's we grow and change. We must seek our own way in this world. I choose to follow your footsteps in the Royal Canadian Navy (see your tantalizing tidbits stuck with me) You sent me off to the big bad world with your personal sewing kit that got you through when mending something was not easily accomplished at sea. I treasured that for years!. Time passes, your family grew, I found one of my own. We kept in touch at family do's up until the last time we spoke Aug 2017. I have pictures and they will be cherished . You've had a good run Uncle so go with god on a gentle breeze and warm summer skies. Thank you for allowing me to be just a small part of your life.. XO
