George Bennett

September 29, 1936 - February 27, 2023


George Bennett


Today we have lost a friend, a husband, a father, a grandfather and  a great grandfather.

George was born and grew up in a little town in Westport Ontario. There were 10 children in the family and George was number 5. He went to elementary school where he was nicknamed “dog-ears” because he wore a little hat that had flaps on the ears.

George graduated from grade 13 and then spent one year in college to become a school teacher. He realized he was not cut out for that so he joined the Canadian Air Force where he worked as a radar technician for 5 years.

It was there that he met Freda and there that they were married. Their daughter, Debbie and son Steven were both born in Sudbury Ontario. Their third baby Nadine, was born in Burnaby, BC.

Freda was from Hatzic and George thought it would be a good time to go to see this beautiful part of BC. After their trip getting settled into a house, George worked at the Vancouver General Hospital until his retirement.

After George’s retirement, he and Freda moved to Abbotsford where he enjoyed peace and quiet and visits from their children and their children’s families.

George was a quiet person with a wonderful sense of humour. He would not say anything to hurt anyone. He listened well and spoke the truth. George was also Friends of Bill W for 60 years.

He will be missed.

A celebration of life will be held at Bakerview Celebration Centre, located at 34863 Cemetery Avenue in Mission, BC on Saturday, April 15th 2023 at 1:00 pm.
