As written by George himself - I make this notice with a sense of gratitude and thankfulness for the 85 years allotted to me. I have been blessed with 63 years of marriage to a wonderfully supportive wife Dorothy. Sons, George, Shane (deceased), Kelly and daughter Deidre, all of whom provided me with few dull moments as they developed their own unique personalities. Grandchildren Ceara, Kelsey and Blake, of which I was very proud of all their accomplishments. I am survived by my children's partners, Bill, Ande and Connor. Siblings, Jim, Margaret, Ken and families.
Happy trails to you until we meet again.
George began his life journey in East Kildonan, then to the North End where he grew up and attended school. He moved back to East Kildonan to raise his family. George enjoyed hunting, fishing, curling as well many a golf games. George was very proud of his accomplishments be it masonry, woodworking or stained glass. "Busy hands are happy hands". He held various jobs, finishing his career at IXL industries.
George will be interred in the family plot at St. John's Cathedral. A Celebration of Life will take place in the summer.
In lieu of flowers... Say something sweet to your sweetheart...

Condolences & Memories (7 entries)

  • George and Dorothy entered my life when I was in grade 3 ( about 8 yrs old) and I am now 52. A long time. My memories include listening to George holler playing Rummoli and Cards on weekends. Camping at Hecla, pool parties, the hunting trips with my dad, yelling EIEIEIO with a drink in his hand and the lot. He was loud and expressive and full of fun. Him and Dorothy both, they were made for each other. George was the first person to call me "Moe". Well he called me crazy Moe. Ha ha ha I don't live close by the home they spent my entire lifetime in any longer so it unfortunately has been a while since I had seen George but one of his best friends was waiting for him with a drink in hand I am sure. Condolences to Dorothy, Georgie, Diedre and Kelly. XXXOOO - Posted by: Maureen Taylor (Family Friend) on: Jan 17, 2022

  • Mr Jaques was a friend of my step father and my mother, spent many times with his family at their home or at functions at the lake growing up . Mr Jacques was a very nice man and very funny ! He missed his calling as a comedian . He was a wonderful husband and a father that supported his children and loved his family very much.. As a young teen growing up Mr Jacques and his family were the family I enjoyed spending time with as they were and still are a hard act to follow.. Many fond memories of him growing up.. He will be missed dearly by many for his warmth, friendliness, humor, support, honesty, work ethic and ❤️ .. - Posted by: Leona Stahl (Friend ) on: Jan 17, 2022
