From: Bill Thiessen
Relation: A good friend in many contexts.

Dear Adelaide:
I wish to convey my sincere condolences, having learned about George’s death only a few days ago. George left an indelible mark on me, as on many others. His sense of generosity was renowned. He was caring beyond the norm. It would seem to me his life might be deemed a model for believers to emulate.

Bill Thiessen.

From: Reg and Edith Penner
Relation: Family Friend

We have many fond memories of George who’s life and activities intersected with ours over many years. We will miss George dearly.

From: Don Klaassen
Relation: Friend

George was one of the first to welcome me in 1985 at Sardis Community Church. He was a faithful and loyal member of the church who regularly challenged us to be more generous and to live with integrity. He led by example and was quick to humbly confess anytime he failed to achieve his own high standards. He made a huge positive contribution to his church and community. His legacy will live on in me and many who were honored to know him.
