A very special thank you to the staff at Kelso Villa who did all they could to make dad feel at home this past year.  To the staff on 6-2 at GBHS for their kindness and exceptional care of dad during his time in hospital.  There is no way to adequately thank Drs. Barfoot and Chapman for their compassion and devotion to dad and our family during this very difficult time.  To the staff at Chapman House Residential Hospice, you are all angels.  Thank you for making the final week of dad’s life a comfortable journey for him and allowing us to celebrate his Birthday a little early so he didn’t miss the Wipp-Ass Annual Family Fish Fry, his one last wish.  Your compassion, guidance and support will never be forgotten.

Wood Funeral Home, 250 14th St. W., Owen Sound, 519-376-7492, on Tuesday, August 31, 2021, from 7-9 p.m.  A private funeral service to celebrate George’s life will be held in the funeral home on Wednesday, September 1, 2021, with Rev.
