George Dawkin passed peacefully with family by his side on May 8, 2022 in residence at Eden Gardens, Nanaimo, BC. George was a devoted husband of 58 years to Vernie and an honest, loving father to Donna, James, and three grandchildren. Born and raised in Nanaimo, George married Vernie in 1964. They then moved to Zweibrucken, Germany where George was stationed with the RCAF. Returning home George was employed at the Harmac pulp mill where he worked for 33 years, retiring at the age of 62.
George started in production at the mill, then moved into the first aid service, and ultimately became and retired as a millwright. George was a lover of sports especially lacrosse, soccer, and bowling. He also supported Nanaimo youth soccer and baseball teams and leagues. George was passionate about his marriage and family along with the arts and the sea for which he had many hidden talents. These passions and talents have been passed onto his family.
At George’s request no service will be held. If you wish, a donation may be made in his memory to Eden Gardens at 1917 Northfield Road, Nanaimo, BC.
