My memories of Uncle George are from his and Aunt Theresa’s visits to us or our visits to them. . On this particular visit I came to Cornwall with my mom and dad. Nobody was home when we got there but the back door had been left unlocked for us. While we waited for them to come home my dad noticed a basket of shelled nuts. He opened all the walnuts and emptied the shells. We all filled the walnut shells with jelly beans my dad glued them back up. Nothing was said over the weekend. We headed back to Oshawa. A few days after we got home the phone rang and it was uncle George. Apparently uncle George thought Aunt Theresa might be playing tricks when he opened walnut after walnut to find nothing but candy. Then he thought maybe someone at the store. Then he remembered his brother-in-law, Albert had been to visit and now he knew who had played this trick. He phoned to share a laugh with my dad. I remember Uncle George loved a laugh as much as he loved playing Pass the Ace. He was a kind, gentle soul and he will be missed

Georges was a very kind man. I hope he realized how happy he made my grandmother, his second wife, Thérèse Ménard. When she invited him to my wedding reception I knew she had found more than a friend in him. I was over the moon that she was able to find love again and with a man with so many shared interests. I’ll always remember visits from Calgary spent playing cards and dominoes, which he always won by the way. He was a wonderful addition to the family as were a new step aunt and uncle in Nicole and Glen. Love, Lori Ménard Seguin

Grandpa George brought enormous joy to my grandmother, Therese Menard. I still remember when she told us she was dating her dance teacher! We were tremendously happy for them. Our entire family welcomed Grandpa George with open arms. He was a generous man, who treated my memere with kindness, respect and love. I only wish they could have had more time together. I'll cherish the memories I have of him.

Lisa, xo
