My deepest sympathy for your loss. George was a prominent figure on the Parkhill scene and is remembered kindly. I remember George and my Dad sitting at our kitchen table with a beer in hand enjoying either solving world problems or simply having a good laugh. He was a great guy and I smile when I remember him. My heartfelt condolences on you loss.

Linda, Doug, Janice and Mary Jane,
We are saddened by your loss. Your dad was a wonderful uncle! We have fond memories of our visits to Parkhill and Uncle George's big beautiful smile, hearty laugh, generosity and hospitality. You were blessed to have a dad like him. He will be missed.
Janice, Reid and family

Dear Pedlar family: we are so sorry to hear about the passing of George. As you all know George was my first employer after high school. He and Betty were great people to work for. As a coincidence my wife Dianne and I plus three other couples played golf at Indian Hills on October 21 and of course George's name came up in conversation. May your many great memories of George help you through this difficult time.
Dale and Dianne Whitelaw and all of the Whitelaw family
