Sorry for your loss Brad and Rolanda

Dear Jeanette and family, We are so sorry for your loss. I have such fond memories of visiting Rondeau as a child and stopping in to visit you and George. You always had the best cookies and uncle George always had the funniest jokes. He will be greatly missed. Sending our love. Gillian and Luke xo

Jeannette and family We were saddened to hear of George's passing... Our thoughts and prayers are with you

Jeanette, Linda, Brad, Kim and families. We have many good memories of George and family. Whenever we saw him at Tim Horton’s he would call us over so he could tell us a story that he remembered from the past involving him and someone in our family. He always gave you something to laugh about. He will be missed.

Brad and Rolanda, so sorry for your loss. Thinking of both of you at this time.

Sorry to hear of George's passing. My husband Peter, has many fond memories of George sharing stories at Tim Horton's in Ridgetown. On the rare occasions when I would get up early on a Saturday or Sunday to go to Timmies' with Peter, George always had a smile for me. He would tell Peter, "You better be treating her well" and we would laugh. George was a one of a kind, his smile and laugh will be missed.

Kim and Mitch, we are very sorry to hear of the passing of your dad. Prayers to you and your family.

Kim and Mitch So sorry for your loss

Kim, Jeanette and family. We were saddened to hear of the passing of George. Our families share many great memories of being together. I would still run into George every few years and it was always nice to revisit with him. Our sincere condolences.

I was so sad to hear about George. I have so many memories of the times our families spent together growing up. From even before we got the cottages I remember snowmobiling, a big container of spicy bubblegum, your fireplace in the basement and then we got the cottages and made so many more happy memories. The campfires and the singing and story telling. My Dad and George coming up on Friday night with the huge bags of corn. Please know that I am thinking of all of you, Jeannette, Linda, Brad and Kim and your families. I am sending love and hugs. XO

Jeanette and family, so sorry to hear of George ‘s passing. We remember fondly our time as neighbours at the lake. Keeping you in our prayers. Lynn and Dennis Boylan

We are sorry for your loss. “The Godfather from Ridgetown “ will be missed. Enjoyed the visits over many coffee’s. The Tim’s coffee club won’t be the same without him. RIP George!

I was so sorry to hear of George's passing. I remember George visiting with us up north while on his hunting trips, and the visits were always entertaining, with he and Moe swapping funny stories. It doesn't matter how old we are or the circumstances involved, it is never easy to lose someone we love. My thoughts are with your family at this time. Please take care.

Jeanette, Linda, Brad, Kim and families Sorry to hear of George's passing. Before covid you could always see George at Tim Horton's and say hi. Know that you are all in our thoughts during this difficult time.

To the Poag Family. I never worked so hard, nor had as much fun, as I did during the summers I worked for the Poags. George made me laugh - on the job - on the way to a job - or out on the town after work! A good boss, a good friend and a fun guy!

Sorry for the loss of George he will be missed.

Very Sorry !!

Jeannette and family..So sorry to hear of your loss
