George served in Cyprus on a peacekeeping mission with the Royal Canadian Dragoons in the late 60’s. On his return, he worked at Michelin Tire, Bridgewater as the Boiler Room and Building Maintenance Supervisor, but retired early due to Parkinson’s Disease. His true passion was flying and he was the happiest when he was in a Cessna. He was a fitness buff and he enjoyed bicycling and running. An avid volunteer, George was involved with Scouts Canada, Liverpool Flying Club, Ham Radio Operators, south Shore Soccer, Bridgewater Senior Wheels, and South Shore Regional Hospital. After his illness, George enjoyed visits from his friends, especially the outings with his constant friend Stephen Joudrey.
