SMITH, George Junner - It is with profound sadness that we share the passing of George Junner Smith, a dearly loved husband, dad and grandpa.  

Our hearts are broken and life as we know it will never be the same. 

Born in Scotland in 1940, George married his childhood sweetheart Anne and moved to England to work for ICI as an Industrial Chemist. 

Upon his retirement from ICI, it was commented that in his entire 30 years with the company he had never taken one sick day - a true testament to his character of loyalty, hard work and integrity. 

George retired at 50 and he and Anne moved to Canada to be with their daughters, Yvonne and Liz.  Blessed with amazing parents, Yvonne and Liz were ecstatic to have them living in Canada. 

Our dad was a true blessing in our lives, who provided loving guidance and support always. There is a huge void in our lives.

Sadly missed by his wife Anne, daughters Yvonne and Liz, son-in-law John, grandchildren Alex and Olivia and sister Helen and family in Scotland.

Dad loved his Tim Hortons coffee. In honour of our dad, we would ask the next time you enjoy yours, please raise your cup and send a prayer heavenwards to George.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date and all will be welcome.

Donations in memory of George can be sent to the Heart and Stroke Foundation with much gratitude.

"Forever in our hearts - Good Night, God Bless."
