“To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides”

 

Peacefully,  at St. Joseph’s Hospice on Friday, October 19, 2018 George Chrisfield Gander passed away at the age of 90.

Travelling was a life-long passion he shared with Berenice and together they enjoyed frequent trips to Florida, where George was the president of The Canada Club.  After earning their pilot’s licenses, George and Berenice bought a Cessna and flew to many destinations. Master of all trades, George was cheerfully willing and able to lend a helping hand if there was something to fix or a problem to solve.  Always strong in his faith, George believed and reminded us often that “the best is yet to come”.

Remember the best times, the laughter the song, 

the good life I lived while I was strong.
