Well George I just heard the news. I worked with George at the auction and the last tour of duty was Ol Blighty Fish and Chips where he was resminiscently thinking of returning to the parsonage. He was a good-hearted soul, and, despite claims to the contrary, he was gernouos with his own money too. Although imperfect like all of us, rest assured I will be praying for the repose of his soul.

Thankyou George, my Father and I are richer for having known you and your great Parrot Paul calling "Too Cheap" from the auction podium!

To Cathy Ferguson- drop me a line I would like to extend my condolences directly to you on the loss of your wonderfully colourful Dad. Take care, Philip Jorre de St. Jorre in Ottawa at 343-203-1227.

Wow, what can I say. I met George in the hospital the day after my dad was admitted to the Vic General. He was across the room from my father and was a very kind, caring man. He watched out for my dad by buzzing the nurses when he (my dad) tried to get our of bed with delirium, while being hooked up with many needles and tubes. Over the week I got to know George and brought him the paper, gum and some milk chocolate. I would always hug and kiss my dad goodbye and tell him I loved him. I can't forget what George said to my dad, "Your a lucky man Mr. Robert that your daughter shows you love and affection...you are so fortunate". It was so heartfelt the way he said it and the look on is face. I wanted to give him a hug too. My dad ended up in the ICU for a day or so and when he can back to his room George had gone for surgery. We asked the nurse where he went so we could visit him but the nurse said his file from this ward had been archived. George I only briefly new you but you made a big impact on me. I loved that you showed me pictures of your beautiful daughter and her lovely children. Rest in peace dear, charming man.

Ironic that Rocancourt should be mentioned in this brilliant Obit.

R.I.P George Ferguson. Although I didn't know you personally, I do know your soul is at peace. Say Hello to my baby sister who just recently passed at the age of 35. She'll be the one standing next to my Dad Walter J. Mealey ex. Marine. They both loved your sense of humor.

I love how you did this. I wish my family would have allowed me to write an obit like this for my grandpa. It doesn't mean you love them any less.. I think it would have helped me get past the way he treated our family, so I think I know how you feel, and I applaud you.

I enjoyed our many conversations at Christie's.
And how you made sure all the girls got chocolate before you retired for the evening.

Saw George at the Marina in Oak Bay every Sunday for years. He sat at the bar as well as we did. One Sunday he sat next to us and we finally introduced ourselves to each other. He was specific that he was a man of the cloth. Told him we were in need of a GP and he went on to tell us in detail how to out smart the health system by calling an ambulance to take him to emergency and because of his age everything was covered. Missed him of late. George was an icon at the Marina and was loved by all the staff. Came in and had his double, plus, plus and the staff would bring him a plate of food. He loved his hugs from all the females. Tia always kept us posted as to how George was doing. RIP

I knew George when he lived in Langford. He was my next door neighbor. It was at the time when the area was still developing and I think even before Veteran's Memorial "Speedway" was thought of ;) He was quite the man. He was married and they had a parrot too. He seemed to enjoy watching over things close to the edge of his house looking down on Selwyn Road.Some people do that, but George almost always had a beer going. I remember him also because for a time, I believe that he was a soldier- part of RCEME Corps. That's Royal Canadian Electrical Mechanical Engineers. He told me of one tour he was on in some far away country... He showed me the Zippo he had, "Desert Rats" was emblazened on it. Pretty cool. I was envious as I am part of RCEME but although he might have offered it, it didn't change hands. There was this time when he felt he needed to get some Douglas Firs on his property taken care of. There was at least 5 huge mothers, one by one they came down. He said he was worried that someone would get hurt if a branch broke high above. Anyway, as one of the trees was coming down, it smacked the ground so hard a chunk rocketed off, shot across the road into the door of my pick up. *Whack!!* Huge dent- door replaced. Every once in a while I wondered where George was and how he was or what he was doing. Did you know he made water filter devices that worked? and glow in the dark street numbers for residences. These were out ready for the market before any others did. I knew him a little but he was a friend. Crusty sometimes, but a friend.RIP George, now I know how to get in touch with ya.
Cheers!
