May 23, 1939 - November 25, 2020

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of George Marion.
George was predeceased by his parents, Paul and Marie (Tytgat), his first wife Beryl (Boberg), and his brothers, Rosario, Marc and Guy.
He is survived and will be sadly missed by his wife Lee; his children, Michelle and Daniel; his stepchildren, Kathy, Dawn and Lori; six grandchildren; his siblings, Paul, Raymond, Roland and Marie-Jeanne, cousins and many nieces and nephews.
George had a very successful career as a general contractor which he thoroughly enjoyed. He built over 500 homes, 35 gas stations across Canada, renovated hotels and just before his retirement built a large chemical plant.
He volunteered on numerous boards and supported many charities, coached ringette, hockey and soccer. He was appointed to the Residential Tenancies Commission, representing landlords. He appeared at both French and English hearings and was well respected for his judgements.
He enjoyed winters in Mesa with friends and family, and summers working on the cottage at Plage Albert. A lifetime member at St. Boniface Golf Course where he golfed with the "Dawn Patrol" and enjoyed his coffee sessions. George was passionate about politics, supporting campaigns with his time and financial contributions and would never back off in having a debate regarding current affairs.
Above all, his faith has been a very important factor in his life. It carried him through his illness for the past two years.
Cremation has taken place and unfortunately due to Covid restrictions, a private service will be held.
The family welcomes donations to the charity of your choice in George's memory, as an expression of sympathy, in lieu of flowers.
