Uncle George was born on the farm in the Golden Bay area on June 17, 1928, to Fred and Molly Krebs. Uncle George went to school and worked on the family farm in Golden Bay for many years, until he married his lovely wife, Ruth, in 1951, and they moved to their own farm. While farming, they also lived part time in Winnipeg, where he worked for Perth's/Quinton's as a supervisor for one of the departments. When he retired, he enjoyed driving his tractor, working the land. He loved to travel with his little family throughout Canada and the US.
After struggling with Alzheimer's, he moved to East Gate Lodge in Beausejour.
He was predeceased by his loving wife, Ruth; and his beautiful daughter, Georgina, in 2019. Also predeceased by his parents, Fred and Molly Krebs; his sisters, Violet, Olga, Ruth, Margaret, Wanda and Doreen; his youngest brother, Ron; and some nieces and nephews.
He is survived by his brother, Gordon; brother-in-law, Bob; and many nieces and nephews.
Uncle George loved having his family come to visit, and we will remember his gentle, kindness and laughter, because he always had some great stories to tell us, about us growing up and his farm work.
We would like to thank the staff from the Rose and Shamrock Unit at East Gate Lodge for all the kindness and care they gave Uncle George. A special thank you to Ross for all his visits. He will be missed by a lot of us, especially Derrick, Beatrice, Loretta and Bev. We love you Uncle, but we know you're in heaven with Aunt Ruth and Georgina, Blackie and Laddie.
Cremation has taken place. A celebration of Uncle George's life will be held at a later date.
