George William Knox

November 16, 1921 – February 26, 2008

Dad passed away at Carman Memorial Hospital after a brief illness. He will be greatly missed by his sons, Huntley (Nancy), Jim (Merle), Ted (Fran), Andrew (Joann) and Garry, his daughters, Janette (Martin) and Barbara (Jim), 16 grandchildren, 8 great grandchildren, his sisters, Mae (George) Marlow and Betty (Edgar) Sandercock, his sisters-in-law, Jean Janick and Dorothy Wood, numerous nieces and nephews.

Dad farmed in the Opawaka district with his father until he joined the Canadian Army in 1942 serving with the Royal Canadian Regiment and Princess Patricia Canadian Light Infantry until 1945. On July 25th, 1945 he married his sweetheart and friend, Eunice Wood. They raised their seven children and continued to farm the family farm until 1977 when they moved to Miami.

Dad was proud of his Scottish roots, his years of service in the Army, his registered Polled Hereford cattle and his family. A quiet man with a wonderful sense of humor, Dad loved the simple things in life - - - sharing stories with his boys, working in his garden and greenhouse, going for a drive to check the crops and the cattle, a cup of tea with his girls, hunting and fishing with his family and their friends, always encouraging his grandchildren’s accomplishments and the hours spent with his friends at the Friendship Centre.

Funeral Services will be held Tuesday, March 4th, 2008 at 1:00 p.m. at the Miami Community Hall. George’s grandchildren are his honorary pallbearers.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Miami Friendship Centre, Miami, Manitoba, R0G 1H0, or to a charity of your choice.
