To effectively capture Geordie’s life in a few paragraphs is simply not possible. Through the 63 years of a loving marriage and raising five children, he leaves us with many good memories. His innovative ability to build or repair whatever was required, whether it be for the family, or just for fun, Geordie’s workmanship had a quality that many admired. He was a lifelong church attendee, humbly volunteering his time and skills to St Paul’s Parish and the Starbuck community.  As a loyal husband and father, Geordie did whatever was required of him to provide for his family.  

Geordie especially loved watching his grandchildren play sports and was proud of their accomplishments. He spent many hours in rinks and baseball fields across Manitoba.  Geordie was also an avid hunter and enjoyed family camping trips. He brought fun and laughter with his musical talent, playing the harmonica for all to hear and he loved dancing which included the Red River Jig. Much of his time in retirement years was spent golfing at Scotswood Links. 

Geordie’s life was a "life well lived" and he will be dearly missed.

A heartfelt thank you goes out to all the staff at the Boyne Lodge for their kindness and compassionate care always going above and beyond. Your kindness means so much to us. Thank-you.
