George Ronald Ariss

diagnosis just four short weeks ago.
George was the devoted and loving husband and partner to
Joanne (nee Smith) of Guelph for 42 years.
He will be lovingly remembered by his children Jason (Alex)
and Jesse (Nicole) and fondly remembered by his grandchildren Parker,
Colby, Annabelle, and Arthur.
He was predeceased by his daughter Wendi
George is survived by his sister Marilyn (John) of Brantford,
his Smith sisters-in-law and their husbands, and his many nieces and
nephews, who will all miss him dearly.
He was so very proud of his two sons — George loved
to spend time at the family cottage with Jason, and could often be
found discussing the latest in technological innovations with Jesse.
As a true renaissance man, George’s family and friends
admired his incredible ability to carry out any restoration project he
set out to do. He had a life-long curiosity that began on his
childhood farm, and stayed with him throughout his professional and
entrepreneurial career. He had a large circle of friends and business
acquaintances in Guelph, Kitchener-Waterloo, and Otter Lake, Seguin
