George BORG

BORG, George - After a long and difficult illness, George passed away peacefully on January 2, 2014 with his beloved wife Loretta by his side. George was a devoted father to Cheryl, Rick (Laurie) and John (Richelle), proud nannu to Jordan, Jolleen, Tyler and Jonelle, as well as three great grandchildren. Predeceased by brother Joseph and sisters Alice and Carmen, George is survived by brothers Frank (Vivian) and Fred (Terry). George was born in Malta, travelling throughout Europe and the Middle East before settling in Canada as a young man over sixty years ago. His plans were to follow his brother Joe and sister Alice to the US, but after meeting Loretta, he married and settled in Whitby for the remainder of his life. George was an extremely proud Canadian, dedicated employee of General Motors and active member of the RC Legion (112). The family wishes to extend its sincere thanks and gratitude to the many staff at Ontario Shores and Thortonview who provided wonderful support and care to George during the last years of his life, as well as to friends and family for their expressions of condolence. In keeping with the wishes of the family, a mass was held at St. Gregory the Great Catholic Church followed by interment at Resurrection Catholic Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations to the Alzheimer's society or Heart and Stroke be made in memory of George. Funeral Arrangements entrusted to the ARMSTRONG FUNERAL HOME.
