Klassen George orig photoIn the early morning hours of Saturday, July 25, 2015 with his wife at his side, George Klassen was called to his eternal rest at Ste. Rose Du Lac, Manitoba.

Left forever to cherish his memory are his wife Helen (Wolfe) his children, Marianne (Darren), Dale (Helen), Sharon (Chris), sisters Helen and Mary. Grandchildren Connor, Nicole, Travis, Dayna, Kennedy, and Austin.

George was born April 9th, 1941 as the ninth of nine children to Gerhard and Katherina Klassen in Cauauhtemoc, Mexico. He was raised there until the age of 18 when he set out on his own and moved to Canada. He settled in Winkler, Mb upon his arrival in Canada and later moved to Winnipeg to find work. After working in Winnipeg in the construction industry for a few years, George returned to Winkler.  

In the spring of 1966, upon the confession of this faith George was baptized in the Old Colony Mennonite Church in Reinland, MB. August 7, 1966 he married his sweetheart Helen Wolfe. They made their home in Carman and raised their 3 children. George decided to start working for himself and bought his first of many highway tractors. He enjoyed a long, successful career in the trucking industry and was truly a self-made man.

He spent his later years traveling to Texas, Arizona, and Florida to vacation for the winter, which he enjoyed immensely. He enjoyed fishing, golf, playing cards, going for coffee and spending time with his grandchildren.

We will always be grateful for the years we had with George. We all have our own special memories of George that will live on inside of us forever.

In Lieu of flowers the family respectfully requests that donations be made in George’s memory to the Carman Area Foundation, Box 160, Carman, MB, R0G 0J0.
