Condolences to Geoff Katie Greig Christina Grandchildren and extended family and friends. George first came into our lives when we spent some time together before Geoff and Katie’s wedding. We enjoyed introducing him to our Scottish countryside and family. He was a fantastic Grampy to Harrison and Austin . Santa for the day at their Maddiston Christmas Party. Loved and looked the part in his red suit. Gentle in nature the children loved him.

Scott Anderson - May 20, 2020

I will always remember uncle George as the soft spoken (really though he spoke very soft and quiet some of the time) uncle who pretended to call me by my brothers names before getting to mine. It was his sense of humour. He used to help me build school projects when I was a kid since he was an expert with electronics and wiring. He was also always there for my mom (his sister). You are already missed so much. Xo

Rolfe Gnass - May 20, 2020

Liz Mc - May 20, 2020

George was one of my earliest playmates! We spent all sorts of time together while we were at the cottage on Rice Lake and those were fun times. We built forts, played tag and enjoyed the boats. We swam for hours at the government dock and of course enjoyed the games at the Barn. I'll always remember George as a happy, kind person. I'm sad to read this news and offer my sincere sympathy to all of you. Liz
