George Lloyd Swanson
1935 - 2019
George passed away at St. Boniface Hospital September 25, 2019 at the age of 84. He is survived by his son Darren (Lindsay nee Simpson), brothers Carl and James (Fay), his sisters Arlene (Frank), Audrey and many nieces and nephews.
Predeceased by his parents and wives, Barbara Swanson (nee Roberts) of 12 years and Marian Swanson (nee Kulmatycki) of 33 years.
George was a quiet man; he didn’t say much but when he did you listened. He was very insightful and sincere. George was an extremely hard-working man and was a successful business owner in the logging industry in Cochrane, Ontario, before moving to St. Andrews, MB to be closer to Marian’s family and to retire.
George was a jack of all trades, but his true passion was flying. He enjoyed being free as a bird. He also took pride in his cooking and gardening as well as entertaining family and friends.
