  1. So sorry for your loss Greg, Krista and family. George was my husband Joe’s family’s neighbour for many years. I had the pleasure to meet George and create many memories at the lake with him. He will be deeply missed and remembered in our hearts.

  2. George was a close family friend, and we all loved him very Much. I think about him all the time.

  3. We became close friends with George over the many years about 25 now.❤️✨… Gary and George were to become good friends and neighbours from our cottages that were just next door to each other. Judy, would come over or we would visit her and have some Barb q s together … good times ❤️ Sometimes George would need to go to town and Judy and I would visit together for awhile. Our boys would work on Gary’s coupe in the garage for some afternoons there and George would sure enjoy hanging out with them there. Boys time ! Many other memories to share over the years… unfortunately George had suffered losses this past year that had taken a toll on him. We went to see him shortly after then had to go North to work for a couple months. Our condolences to the Cheney Family , prayers and hugs being sent along .
