George worked most of his life in the trucking industry working for others, and then owned his own trucks. He loved his family and especially enjoyed family gatherings. He and Ella enjoyed camping and would be out in their travel trailer at every opportunity with friends and family, often taking along their grandchildren as well. George also enjoyed sports, especially baseball and hockey. George played baseball for several years and he was an avid hockey fan. The family wishes to thank the staff at Hawthorne Park and Orchard Manor, Dr. Williams, and the staff in Emergency, 4W and 4E at KGH. He loved well and was well loved.
