HARRISON, George Francis
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of George Francis Harrison on April 25, 2012, in Vernon, BC. George was born in Winnipeg on July 9, 1922, but grew up in Moose Jaw, Sask. He was married to Margaret Webb for 58 years, who passed away in October of 2004. They resided in Calgary from 1954 to 1999 when they moved to Vernon, BC. He is survived by his two daughters, Stacey Harrison of Wolseley, Sask. and Cathy Klukas (Arthur) of Vernon, BC, five grandchildren and six great- grandchildren. George could be a stubborn, proud Irishman, but he was a generous, kind-hearted man, a caring husband and a loving father. His grandchildren affectionately called him "soft touch". To both he and our mother, family always came first and for that we will be forever grateful. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association or the Heart and Stroke Foundation. There will be a small service held at Vernon Funeral Home (Telephone 250-542-0155), on May 12, at 2:00 p.m.
"When I come to the end of the road and the sun has set for me, I want no rites in a gloomy filled room. Why cry for a soul set free for this is the journey we all must take, and each must go alone. It's all part of the master's plan – a step on the road to home."
