April 6, 1930 – August 15, 2019
It is with great sadness that we must announce the passing of our dad, George Eberle, on August 15, 2019 in Parksville, B.C. He is predeceased by his wife, Diana (nee Wheeler) (1940 – 2008), and his son, Michael (1961 – 2006), both of whom he loved and missed every day.
He will forever be remembered by; his ‘girls’, Lynn Graham, Lea Breen, and Sherri (Mike) Yarrow; his 8 grandchildren, Fraser (Erin), Alexander, and Vaughn Graham, Kelsey (Garrin), and Brittany (Andrew) Breen, Cameron (Fabiola), Matthew, and Allison (Jeremy) Yarrow; and his 4 great grandchildren, Rylen, Ashton, and Keenan Breen-Dumond and Kingston Breen-Plank.
Dad will also be lovingly remembered by his sister, Adeline (Earl) Chamberlain, his brother-in-law, Steve (Carol) Wheeler, and his sister-in-law, Joanne (Don) Clarke, as well as many nieces, nephews and friends.
He was born near Unity, SK and as a young boy moved to Kelowna, B.C., the place that he always called ‘home’, even though he hadn’t lived there for many years.
Meeting mom in her hometown of Sechelt, B.C. in 1958 and then marrying in 1959, was the start of their years together raising four kids. They lived briefly in Kelowna and then moved back to Sechelt, where they first fell in love. In their later years, they lived in Surrey, B.C. and then finally in Parksville, B.C.
Dad was also very proud to have belonged to the Lions Club for over 53 years, serving his community in Sechelt and Parksville.
We would like to thank the staff at Stanford Seniors Village in Parksville, for the care of dad when he needed it. He was stoic, kind and loved reminiscing about his life, he will be deeply missed.
