On his 80th birthday, George quietly and peacefully passed away. He was the son of Reginald and Helene Tompkins, both predeceased. He leaves behind his loving wife Loretta, children Andrea (Brian), Durelle, Rick (Jody), Yvonne (Claude) and Julia. Also, grandchildren Heidi (Mike), Avery (Tanya), Andrew (predeceased), Joel, Evan, Austin, Ashley, Aleisha (Trevor), Lyndsey, Tiffany, Ashlynn and 3 great grandchildren. Referred to by many as GAT, he was known for his own brand of humour which sustained him throughout his eighty years. As a resident of St. Gabriel’s Villa, he was cared for with dignity and respect given warm, genuine care enriched by dignity and respect by the wonderful staff. His love of the outdoors extended to the pleasure derived from camp on Penage. There will be a gathering to embrace his life in early May. Donations in George’s memory can be made directly to St. Joseph’s Foundation (re: St. Gabriel’s Foundation), Alzheimer Society or to a charity of your choice.
