Devoted father of Brenda and husband Fulvio Bernardon. Cherished and much loved Grandpa of his "Pride & Joy", Christopher and Stephanie. Loving brother of the late Germaine and Leonard Loquet, late Jean and Mariette, late Gerard and Lea, Wilhelmina Bytebier and late Jef, late Leonard and wife Christiana, and the late Noela De Helt and husband Gustaf.

He will be sadly missed by many nieces and nephews in Belgium and Toronto. The family would like to thank Drs. Hirmiz and Kulkarni for their care. George was a skilled carpenter and woodworker. His many designs, projects and pieces of furniture will be treasured always. He loved fishing, gardening, and puzzles. Grandpa, we will keep your memories alive forever. We will definitely miss your humour and playful personality. You always had a quick response, funny comment, and made our lives all the better. Even in your weakest moments, you put your family first and still were able to make us chuckle. Visiting at the
