It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of George Neilson Clark. Born on July 10, 1921, George, having lived a full life, passed away peacefully on Saturday, April 12, 2008 in Campbell River Hospital, at the age of 86 years. He was predeceased by his parents; his loving wife, Ruth; and their son Stuart. George is survived by his brother, Bill; loving sons, Steven (Narda) and Michael (Rose); grandsons, Devin, Bailey and Andy (Nikki); great grandchildren, Brodie and Kate; daughter-in-law, Marie-Lou and her daughter, Cielo.
George was born in Vancouver, BC and met his wife-to-be, Ruth, at Lord Bing High School. They married in 1944 and moved to Campbell River in 1951, to work at Hughes Bros. Plumbing & Heating. By 1965 he had opened up his own business, Van Isle Plumbing and Heating, which he very successfully managed until he retired in 1982. George most enjoyed being with family and friends, entertaining and playing cards. He was a long time member of Sequoia Springs Golf Club and enjoyed nothing more than a good game of golf with friends, anywhere, anytime, or curling at the C.R. Winter Club in our rainy season. In his later years, he joined the Oyster River Salmon Enhancement Society, and enjoyed the weekly events, till he was just there for moral support and camaraderie. He will be greatly missed and ever loved. We would like to thank the 3rd Floor Staff at the Campbell River Hospital for their kindness and care.
A Celebration of George’s Life will be held at the Christian Life Fellowship Church, 445 Merecroft Street, Campbell River, BC, on Saturday, April 26, 2008 at 1:00 PM, with Pastor Albert Hopp officiating. Cremation. A Reception will follow the Service at the Elks Hall, 516 South Dogwood Street. In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, donations in memory of George may be made to the BC Cancer Society or the Oyster River Salmon Enhancement Society.
