ALEXANDER, George Vasile

It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of our dear father, George Vasile Alexander. George was born at Victoria, BC on August 17, 1917. He passed away in the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital on March 25, 2004, with his family by his side. Predeceased by his wife Daphne; brothers Tom and Nick; sisters Annie, Maggie, Mary; and granddaughter Nikki.

George is also survived by his grandchildren: Bonnie, Darlene, Jorgie, Brody, Breanne, Bailey, Brett, Daesha, Darron and Darissa; great grandchildren: Kaitlynne, Kennedy, Brianna and Dalton. George retired from Canada Safeway Ltd. after 43 years and pursued his favourite pastimes, which were gardening and fishing in the Saanich Inlet while living in Brentwood Bay. George and Daphne moved to Qualicum Beach where they had vacationed many summers. George’s remaining years were spent in Parksville near his family. He had a great sense of humour, liked by everyone, never complained and lived a long content life. The family wishes to thank the caregivers from the Parksville Home Support with special thanks to Darlene and Ron for their loving care and devotion during George’s final years.
