    George was my construction class teacher in Vic High in 1974-1975. He was a great teacher and was an inspiration for me to build my own house which I still live in. We also did some work for Garth Graham who owned Graham meats which led me to a part time job while in school. I became a Shipwright for DND and had a successful career there. I owe many thanks to George for giving me the foundation to build a good life!


    Barbara and Family
    Sorry to hear of the passing of George. A friend and fishing partner for many years. George and I had many fishing trips together and I learned a lot from him. He had many talents.
