George Howard Higginbottom

It is with great sadness that the family of George Howard Higginbottom announces his passing on September 15, 2014 at the age of 70, at the Shuswap Lake General Hospital in Salmon Arm following a short courageous battle with cancer.

George was born in Selkirk Manitoba, served in the Canadian Armed Forces from 1960 – 1972, employed by Deer Lodge Veterans Hospital from 1973 – 1979 and worked as a Winnipeg Transit Bus driver from where he retired in 2000. During his retirement in Enderby British Columbia, George enjoyed the management responsibilities of mobile trailer parks and ensuring parks were well maintained and took special pride in assisting the residents where required.

He is lovingly remembered by his wife Carol as a gentle, generous, good natured fun loving Husband, Dad, Granddad, Brother, Uncle and Friend who will be deeply missed.

Respecting George’s wishes there will be no formal service.
