Born: February 24th, 1934
Passed on: January 27th, 2013
On January 27, 2013 George left us to re-join his wife, Ruth and daughter Sylvia in the kingdom of Heaven, after he passed away peacefully in the care of family and friends.
George was born in Dombrad, Hungary on February 24, 1934. He came to Canada in 1956 where he worked and retired from Balco Industries (Tolko). In 1966 he met the love of his life, Ruth. He instantly became a father to Jim Babcock, Loretta Buckingham, Linda Faust, and Margaret Dennison. Shortly to follow came his three children, Sylvia Martin, Barbara Fedora and Michael Galics. He will be joyfully remembered by sixteen grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
George's passions were many, whether it be playing a good game of Bingo, working in his garden, fishing, dancing, spending time entertaining with family/friends and enjoyed watching his grandchildren play a good game of soccer!
Prayers will be held Friday, February 1, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. at Our Lady of Perpetual Help and the Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday February 2, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. Following the service, George will be laid to rest at Hillside Cemetery.
