I met George my first Year at Sandpiper in 2014. He was a character who always brought a smile. In 2014, he was anti-technology. In 2015, he got on the bandwagon and I found myself tutoring him on his iPad. Rest in peace, George, You will be missed by many.

So sad to lose my friend George who made my days at Sandpiper filled with so much fun and great memories. George always used to say we were all just halfway there. Guess we just do not know when we have reached that halfway point. RIP GEORGE

George was a special friend. I knew him as a UNTD in HMCS Discovery. Then we both turned up in Ottawa and the friendship continued at his home overlooking the Ottawa River between Ottawa and Montreal. Then we retired and he would stop in to visit in Tucson Arizona on his way to Florida. Two years ago he gave me a full tour of Bowen Island and gave me a piece of bark from the massive trunk of Opa, a 1000 year old Douglas fir. I have it in front of me now. Above all a comfortable, loyal caring friend. Bob Duncombe, Fredericton

Marie-Claire and I are deeply saddened by the news, even though, given his courageous and ultimately futile search for a solution to his cancer, it is not unexpected. Marie-Claire and I are camping and hotelling in Arizona until early April and thus we would not be able to his Celebration of Life on 11 March 11.

So we will share a few thoughts now. My first memory of George was a weekend sail in a RCNSA sloop from Esquimalt to the San Juans in August 1963. I was a 3rd year Cadet, Davis Daycock CHIPPAWA 1957 (then a 3rd year law student) was my term lieutenant and he arranged the boat and invited George, then a Sub-Lieutenant to join us.

Our paths diverged after that, but in typical UNTD fashion reconnected years later when I, the transplanted Ontarian, got involved in west coast UNTD lunches and the famous UNTiDy hikes.in the Whistler area, Saltspring Island ...and of course on George's beloved Bowen Island where we met "Opa" a huge ancient cedar and the site of various UNTD photos.. George was always fun to be around, good for discussions and an excellent host. He always had something interesting to share - a book, a magazine, a thought. Indeed his picture has been aptly chosen and reminds us of George engaged in a thoughtful discussion. We loved to sit on his deck overlooking Passage Island in the early morning and watch the hummingbirds and jays with a cup of hot coffee. We had a mutual interest in health and keeping fit, so we enjoyed his newsletters. He was an unforgettable character in so many ways and someone we really appreciated. We miss him deeply.

Waving from Sedona,
Roger and Marie-Claire

George was a dear friend whose humour and generosity will be missed by many -- especially his UNTD shipmates.

Hello Ed:
So sorry to read that George passed away. I had not seen George for years.

It's a reminder that life's road is sometimes rough because the time we shared just wasn't long enough
