1927 - 2020

George D. Klassen, aged 92, of Winkler, MB, went home to be with his Lord and Saviour, at Boundary Trails Health Centre, on Saturday, July 25, 2020.
George was predeceased by his wife Ida Klassen (Wiebe) in 2015. He will be missed by his family of three sons, John and Vi Klassen, George and Shirl Klassen, Peter and Eileen Klassen, two daughters, Kathy and Robert Krahn, Ruth and Dave Greene, 13 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren, and two sisters.
George was born a businessman at heart. He started his first store in 1961 as KLASSEN'S BARGAIN CENTRE, later it became KLASSEN'S OF WINKLER. He retired from that and started up many secondhand stores; just like the first one, he started under many different names. He retired officially July 2018 from THOSE WERE THE DAYS. His past time was filled with writing poetry, reading the newspaper, riding his scooter, grocery and thrift store shopping and watching sports on tv. Many stores and stories in his journey of life, from auction sales (#77), garage sales and his love to be with people.
The final months of Dad's life was enjoyed with his family. We enjoyed our time together. COVID-19 made it a struggle, but we made the best of it.

Thanks for the memories Dad.
You will be missed.
You are now free of pain and at peace.
Praise God.

Private family graveside service was held at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, July 29, 2020 at Westridge Memorial Gardens in Winkler.
