June 23, 1927 – April 4, 2022
It is with sadness we announce the passing of our husband, father, grandfather and friend on April 04, 2022. George was born on a farm near the town of Duval, Sask. on June 23, 1927, the only son of John and Beatrice Dickie.
He is predeceased by his parents and his only sibling Dorothy Treble, Fred Treble and his first wife, Honora Ingram, mother of his children.
He is survived by his children, Mike, Dave, Anne, Shelley, Tom and Kristine. 10 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren and his niece Glady (Don) in Sask and family Todd (Tenelle) in Alta and Kelly in Europe.
Also left to mourn, his wife of 41 years, Lorraine and her children, Norm (Karin) in Ontario, Darryl (Tracy) in Alta and Sandra (Greg) in Victoria, 8 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren and nieces Sherry, Copper and Cindy.
George was a career Navy man. In June of 1945 he hitched a ride to Regina and joined the Navy but he was not called to serve until Nov. of that year. During his 32 years in the Navy he served on several ships as well as land appointments in Grimsby, Cornwalls, Churchill, and Victoria.
He retired to live in Victoria in 1977 where he met and married Lorraine. He enjoyed his 45 years of retirement doing the things he loved to do – golfing, curling, playing bridge and shuffleboard at the Legion, taking six cruises and many road trips in their small motorhome.
In 1962 George was lured to Duncan by the chance to own a single family home and a membership in an 18 hole golf course. Duncan offered all the things George liked to do even the small vegetable garden he planted and weeded each year, and most of all, making many good friends.
No service will be held due to the pandemic.
