Four Generations of Devoted Service
In the Selkirk area and Interlake Since 1935
It is with deep sadness that our family announces the passing of our husband, father and grandfather, George West, who passed away peacefully at the age of 86 on April 17, 2019.
George is survived by his wife Juelle, daughter Kandi (Bruce), son Jim, grandchildren Sarah, Bradley, and Tanner as well as many nieces, nephews, sister & brothers in-law and many friends.
For many years he owned his own businesses in the town of Selkirk, was a Captain at St. Andrew’s Fire Department, played golf and hockey with many friends. Our talented dad will be remembered by friends who knew him as Santa bringing the spirit of Christmas to the streets of Selkirk ringing his bells with his horse and sleigh. Dad could build or fix anything and was an amazing art painter. He enjoyed time with those who shared his passion in the antique car club, his love of golf and hockey and had worked for Air Canada for many years.
Our family has great admiration and gratitude for the staff at the Tyndall Building, ward 5.
A celebration of George’s life will be held at Gilbart Funeral Chapel on Wednesday, April 24, 2019 at 1:00 p.m.
Condolences may be left on his tribute wall at www.gilbartfuneralhome.com
Gilbart Funeral Home, Selkirk in care of arrangements.
