It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the peaceful passing of George Sabiston, of Aldergrove, BC after a brief battle with cancer on November 24th 2019 at the age of 69 years.
He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 20 years, Julie; parents Ed and Shirley; children: Doug, Shannon (Steve), Cory (Mireille); Christine (Dennis), and Jeannine; grandchildren: Ethan, Madeleine, Logan, Michael, and Aria; brothers, Frank (Linda), Michael (Lori); sisters, Marina, Brenda (Richard); as well as numerous relatives and friends.
George was a loving and devoted husband, father and grandfather who cared very deeply for his wife and family. He was a welcoming and loving man who embraced all his stepchildren wholeheartedly as his own. He was hardworking and spent many years as a mechanic even running his own businesses. He retired in 2004 and his focus became his wife and family. He took great pride in looking after Julie and their home. He was well known for keeping his house (inside & out) clean and tidy; some friends called him “Felix”. Everything had to be in its proper place. He enjoyed preparing meals for his family particularly during holidays. He loved to garden and grew the most delicious vegetables in his green house. In his younger days, he was an avid hunter and fisherman, but once his grandchildren came along they became his priority. He was always quick with a goofy grandpa joke to make the grandkids laugh. He will be profoundly missed by all who knew him.
A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 2 pm, on December 8, 2019, at Semiahmoo Fish and Game Club (1284 184th St, Surrey, BC V3Z 9R9).
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that Memorial Donations be made in George’s name to the BC Cancer Foundation at 150-686 W. Broadway, Vancouver, BC V5Z 1G1
You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence for the family.
Our most sincere sympathies to the family and friends of George Edwin Sabiston November 24th 2019..
