George Foster McKinley

George passed away suddenly while out on his daily walk.

Survived by his wife Jane, daughter Samantha (Kristen) Eck, grandchildren Hannah and Angus, whom he adored, as well as “his” dog Maggie.

He is also survived by his brothers Jack (Diane), Jim (Marge) and Joe (Joan), brother-in-law  Walter Steele, as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.  

He will also be missed by many good friends and colleagues. He was a proud BC Logger. He loved his family, the outdoors, puttering in his shop, hard physical work, a good story and his morning coffee shop visit with his buddies.

Since his retirement, he really enjoyed quading with his friends, hiking, camping and his time volunteering with the Ladysmith & District Historical Heritage Preservation Team.

We want to thank everyone for all of your love and support at this most difficult time, it has meant so much. At the time, there will be no service.

Rest in peace My Love. We love you so very much. XXX
