George is the very best Daddy, Grandfather and Great Grandfather any one of us could have asked for. He is leaving a wonderful legacy that has been handed down to all of his grandchildren and great grandchildren.
George's greatest loves were God and family. He was the glue that kept all of his family together. His great niece said “I feel so blessed to have known my great Aunt and Uncle so well. That's a pretty rare relationship, and it shows how special they are.”
Even though he had to leave the farm for his health, you could never take the farmer out of him. He was not able to have animals, but gardened up to an acre, many of his grandchildren have fond memories of farming and harvesting with grandpa and grandma. He loved to fish and enjoyed many trips to Canada for fishing. He did wood working, even working on bird houses for his great grandson to his very last days.
