February 24, 1933 – August 13, 2020
George is survived by his twin brother John; Leona, his wife of 60 years, and his sons Gordon and Lloyd.
A resident of Nelson, BC since 1974 when he took on the role of District Geologist for the B.C. Government. He was known for his contagious enthusiasm, sense of humour, singing voice and love of the outdoors.
He taught hundreds of people through the Chamber of Mines of Eastern B.C. He was very proud of the fact several million dollars a year in exploration monies were spent in the Kootenays as a direct result of these prospectors’ discoveries.
The family would like to thank Dr. Milde for the care and comfort he provided. They would also like to acknowledge all the other health professionals that have assisted George and the family over the last few months.
