He was a remarkable individual who touched the lives of so many.

George was born in Lanesville, NS and later grew up in Bedford, NS. Together with Joyce they made their home in Beaver Bank, NS. George’s final years were spent in Regina, SK. George's passion for music began at an early age. He possessed a remarkable talent for playing the piano, organ, and accordion delighting audiences with his melodies. As a dedicated musician, George lent his musical skills to countless bands, playing the church organ and bringing endless delight to those who had the pleasure of experiencing his performances. His passion for entertaining knew no bounds, and his music echoed through the hearts of all who had the privilege of hearing it.
In addition to his musical endeavors, George exemplified the true spirit of a hero as a dedicated volunteer firefighter. With over 50 years of selfless service, including a tenure as Fire Chief and later as Treasurer and advisor, he displayed unwavering bravery in the face of adversity. His commitment to protecting and serving the community was nothing short of extraordinary, leaving an indelible mark on all those whose lives he saved and protected.
George found immense joy in the simple pleasures of life. He loved maintaining his yard, and always had to have a clean car. He found solace and joy tending to his Christmas trees and raising chickens. The beauty and serenity of his Christmas tree farm brought joy to the hearts of many as they embarked on their annual quest for the perfect tree. Raising chickens was a testament to his nurturing and caring nature, the same qualities he bestowed upon his loved ones and friends.
George possessed an unmatched love for humanity and thrived on the connections he fostered throughout his life. He had a profound gift for working with people, and his career in sales allowed him to forge lasting relationships based on trust and understanding. His impeccable ability to make others feel seen and cared for brought comfort and solace to those around him.
Above all, George was a loving and devoted family man. His marriage to his beloved wife, Joyce, spanned an extraordinary 62 years, and their bond was a testament to the power of love and commitment. Their love was a shining example to all who knew them, inspiring generations to come. George treasured every moment spent with his son Rodney and daughter Kimberley. They were blessed to call him their father as he filled their lives with laughter, guidance, and unwavering love. His grandchildren Craig, Colin, and Caileigh will forever be grateful for the love, support, wise council and unwavering presence “Papa” graced their life with. Great-grandchildren Camron, Nyle, Bryden, Maren, and Cade will forever be grateful for Papa’s love. His memories will live on in their hearts.
In the midst of our grief, let us celebrate the life of this incredible man who left an indelible mark on our hearts.
