November 7, 1921 – October 17, 2017

George passed away peacefully with family and Reverend Harry Currie by his side after a brief stay at the Royal Alexandra Hospital.

He lived a long, full, independent and positive life. Born in Brockville, Ontario, he married Hazel Kearny in 1940 and moved his family to Edmonton in 1948 where he lived to be 95 years old.

George was pre-deceased by his wife, Hazel, son, Rob, son-in-law, Don, his parents George and Rhoda, his brother, Bill, and sister, Muriel.

Left to mourn his loss are his daughter, Sharleen Buxton, daughter-in-law, Joanne Milson, grandchildren, Norman Milson (Jolene), Keltie van Engelen (Bob), four great grandchildren, Elliot, Stuart, Hendrik and Joanna, numerous relatives in Saskatchewan, Ontario and Nova Scotia, and close friends and neighbours.

George’s ashes will be placed alongside Hazel’s at a private family service at the Beechmount Cemetery Field of Honour.

A Service of Remembrance will be held at First Presbyterian Church (10025-105 St.) on Sunday, October 22 at 4:00 pm with Reverend Currie officiating.

Donations in memory of George can be made to First Presbyterian Church.

Rest in peace.

  1. Sharleen, I am so sorry to learn that Uncle George has gone. My heartfelt condolences to you, Joanne and your families. Your dad was so kind and gentle and I have many happy memories of him and of your mom. I always marvelled at his ageless appearance. He had such a special bond with my mom, which she has treasured all of her life. The last of the Kearny-Wardrope generation…
