It is with sadness that George has passed from our lives but with joy that he has left us so many happy and cherished memoires - Best remembered for his good humour, cigars and Cadillac!
George was born in Selkirk, Manitoba in 1928 and worked in a number of industries which over the years evolved into co-owning Merit Building Cleaning Services with his lifelong teammate and wife, Sylvia.
George’s interests were many and varied: he had a passion for animals, especially dogs, reading, following business trends especially in Saskatchewan, enjoying cigars and most of all his family. His love of travel took him and his wife Sylvia to 28 countries where they satisfied their quest for learning about other cultures and their respective histories.
George is reunited with the many family members who have predeceased him – his loving wife Sylvia, his parents Annie and Anton Wur, his brothers Anthony and Stan as well as other Wur family members.
George leaves behind his children; Karen (Ron) of Nova Scotia, Jack (Tanya) of Saskatoon, Sheri (Don) of Saskatoon, his much adored grandchildren who gave him unlimited shots of happiness and lots of laughter; Jason (Deserae), Kevin, Austin (Emily) and Kristen and a much loved and most spoilt dog, border collie, Oliver.
Thank you to the staff at Extendicare as well as the medial staff of RUH Hospital. George’s family truly appreciates the care, thoughtfulness and kindness that was bestowed upon him by all the caregivers.
George will be greatly missed but will live on in our hearts. Our memories of him will be forever cherished.
A Celebration of Life for George will be held at a future date at the Edwards Family Centre and will be announced in this newspaper. In lieu of floral arrangements the family requests donations be made to the Saskatoon SPCA to honour George’s love of animals, especially dogs.
