  7. Reading these comments has reminded me how much fun it was growing up in Wallaceburg in the ’50s. George was 4 years older than me, was always the instigator and was such a funny guy. Throw into the mix our cousin Guy McCreery and our many sleep overs at our Gramma Lawson’s were hilarious. Gramma akways sat with us just to make sure the jokes were tasteful and laughed just as hard as we did. Many a night I went to bed with sore sides from laughing so hard. That’s what I remember most fondly about my brother.

  8. So sorry for you loss. Remember George so well and such a well liked fellow. Steve & family Cindy & family are in our thoughts and prayers. Julie and Dan Shaw

  9. Sorry for your loss. So many good memories of George and the family growing up. When I was a kid I called him uncle George. George helped me learn how to drive a stick shift on the fourth concession outside of Wallaceburg in the mid 80’s. George loved his family and always had a soft spot in his heart for animals. I know he will be missed. Rest In Peace George
