In days of better health George loved dancing with his wife Vivian whom he was married to for 57 years, curling, playing hockey, ice fishing, and you never knew where or when he would stop in for a visit. George was a Charter member of Manitowaning Lions Club and was always there to volunteer for any club. He loved and was very proud to be a Lion.
