1944 ~ WILLIAM GEORGE ~ 2018

Posted: May 3rd, 2018

It is with great sadness that we, the family of William (Bill) George, beloved husband of the late Anne George, announce his peaceful passing on Sunday, April 29th, 2018 in Medicine Hat Regional Hospital at the age of 73 years.

Bill was born September 30th, 1944 to Augustus and Elenore in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Although Bill and Anne moved their young family west in 1973 and made Medicine Hat home, he was still a “Newfie” at heart and travelled back many times with his children and grandchildren. In recent years, Bill looked forward to his travels around Canada and the USA with Sue and Clay, his most memorable being to Alcatraz and anywhere they went in Clay’s 57 Chev. He was anticipating the ride to Newfoundland this summer. Bill was a very proud father to his three children and leaves to cherish his memory: son, Jason (Sharon) George; son, Sheldon (Penny) George; and daughter, Sue (Clay) Schweigert. His six grandchildren were the love of his life: Tyran George, Ashtyn George, Devin Mercer, Jayden George, Hayden Schweigert and Logan Schweigert; and many in-laws, nieces and nephews. He is also survived by his sister, Mavis Nixon. Bill was predeceased by his parents; his wife, Anne (2010); his brother, Jerry; and sister, Edna; as well as his grandson, Jayton George. Thank you to the staff at the Medicine Hat Hospital on 5E, the staff in the ER and thank you very much to the staff at River Ridge Seniors home for everything you did for Dad when he was living there. The Funeral Service will be held at SAAMIS MEMORIAL FUNERAL CHAPEL, #1 Dunmore Road SE, on Monday, May 7th, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. with Gary W. Goran officiating. A Private Interment will take place at Saamis Prairie View Cemetery. Memorial gifts in Bill’s memory may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 325 Manning Road NE, Calgary, Alberta, T2E 2P5.
