It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beloved George. He will be greatly missed by his wife Eileen, brother Bob, son Darwin, step-daughter Laura, nine grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by his parents Claude and Yvonne and sisters, Lorraine Hobson and Louise Rafferty.
George was raised in Chase Creek and went to school in Chase. He went on to work for Mattey Bro. and 35 years with BC Hydro, which took him to most parts of BC. His retirement years were spent on his hobby farm where he became famous for his amazing garlic. Many hours were devoted to the Skmana Cross Country Ski Club and the Chase and Dist. Fish and Game Club.
A memorial service will be held at the Chase Community Hall on Saturday November 21, 2015 at 1:00 PM.
In Lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the BC Children’s Hospital in memory of George.
