``George was born in P.E.I. and came to Ontario at the young age of 17 but was always a P.E.I. man at heart. A retiree of General Motors, a true family man, a volunteer fireman and a boy scout leader. He enjoyed travelling east, west and north and south in their motor home. He enjoyed making toys and things in his work shop over the years. A true gentleman with a love for children. Always there for anyone who needed help with a smile, a hand shake and maybe even a candy or two.``
