George’s life journey began on the family farm 10 miles south of Duffield on the North Saskatchewan River. Bud and Be happily resided there for 58 years after their marriage June 14, 1952, later retiring to Stony Plain for the next 10 years. Bud’s first occupation was mixed farming, then insulating for J.K. Campbell, followed by 15 years as a parts & pick-up driver at Manalta Coal Sundance. In the 1980’s, he was proud to add a herd of registered red angus cattle to his farm. Bud also volunteered in the community, church, school and 4-H. Some of his happiest times were spent fishing and hunting with his cousins, friends and daughter Sandy. Travel was another favourite pastime.
A Celebration of Life for George will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 15, 2020 at Stony Plain United Church located at 5012-51 Avenue with Reverend Heather Koots officiating.
The family wishes to express their sincere gratitude to the staff of Devon Hospital Long Term Care for their care, concern and compassion shown to George.
As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations may be made in George’s name to Mewassin or Stony Plain United Church, or to a charity of one’s choice.
