Dear Maricha & family,
I am deeply saddened to have just discovered that George passed away in September. Suzanne and I extend our sincere condolences to you and family. I had written him an email recently and when there was no reply, I decided to check and learned this very sad news. I deeply respected George as a person, a Catholic and as a lawyer. I always looked up to this fine gentleman and counted myself fortunate to have met him and become friends. He was learned, gentle and humourous and always respected others. I met him years ago "on the telephone" when I was working in the administrative offices of the Federal Court of Canada at Ottawa and then in person on one high profile national case abroad. We hit it off instantly and easily became good friends. George was one whom I was always delighted to talk to and meet when possible. Sue and I fondly remember our stay with you on our visit there a few years ago. You were both very gracious. George was special, engaging, bright and a easy man to like and to trust. He was immensely fun to chat with. We shall miss him deeply. May God bless him and you

Please accept my sincere sympathies for your loss. I met George at the Department of Justice in 1989. I remember his smile, his sense of fairplay and his intense committment to his family and to his faith. God bless him and you.

Dear Maricha: I remember you and George well. In the summer of 1967 George was a bellman on my shift at the Banff Springs Hotel. His quiet humour, energy, and integrity were welcome assets at that mountain paradise--and to me as his "captain". When Cupid's arrows found their mark that summer, Maricha, I soon believed that the match was perfect. May God's blessing rest upon you and your family always.

Dear Maricha & Family,
We are all thinking of you at this most difficult time. George was obviously such a wonderful family man and he will be sorely missed. Our love to you all.

Dear Ms. Carruthers and family, I am sorry for your loss. I worked with George at the Department of Justice for the last six years of his career; coincidentally, the first six years of my career. George was a wonderful mentor. He always had time for me and other junior litigators. I had the benefit of junioring George on a large case heard in Prince George BC towards the end of his career. It was a pleasure to learn from him, to get to know him and watch him in action. George was always so very well prepared.

I'm sorry that I didn't stay in better touch, George. You will be missed.
