    George is rembered by us as a dedicated Lions Club member, who expounded the services of the Fire Department and public service. Many will remember that George was instrumental in apprehending a wanted U.S. criminal whom George identified at the Hudson’s Bay store in downtown Calgary. George always had an eye to perform public service and was an excellent Lions Club member. We extend our condolences with the knowledge that our lives are better because we knew George. May the good Lord ease your pain and provide happiness in the memories of all the good things George strived for.
