A faithful servant has passed away. George Walter Burns went to be with his Lord on Thursday, March 26, 2020 in his 92nd year.
He was married to his devoted wife Dolores, for 44 years until her passing on November 23, 1996. Beloved dad of Duncan & Mary Burns and Beckie & Michael Colby. Devoted grandpa to Kaitlynn and Kyle Burns. Son of the late Robert and late Jessie Burns. Remembered by his brothers late Robert (late Gerry), late Alexander, late James (late Amelia), and Rae (Sharon). Brother- in- law of Doris Mitchell (late Wes), late Bob Dinsdale (late Patricia), and the late Ted Dinsdale. He will be missed by his many nieces and nephews.
George’s family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to friends, acquaintances, relatives, neighbours and the First Baptist Church community for their help, kindness, generosity, and compassion toward George. He was lovingly cared for and watched over by those who knew him. Also, we extend our thanks to the caring staff at Butternut Manor Retirement Home in Uxbridge, Ontario and Bloomington Cove Long Term Care Home in Stouffville, Ontario.
