Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. We have many wonderful memories of George. George was a huge asset to our three boys education and to the education system as a whole. Our son, Mike, will always have a special place in his heart for “Mr. Taylor”.

I’m sure its such a time of loss and a struggle for acceptance for your family. I pray that the God that I so often rely on, gives you strength, comfort and hope.

Relation: Friend, colleague and union sister

My heartfelt sympathy to Marg and the family. George was a hard-working, caring person. He always had the back of teachers and his CEP sisters and brothers. I was privileged to work with him in Health and Safety and then as one of the first Field Service staff at the BCTF. A favourite memory is the Alaska cruise with the “cruisers” which included George and Marg. George made the world a better place and he will be sorely missed.

Relation: friend and colleague

Heartfelt sympathies to Marg and family. Thinking of you at this time.

From: James Sanyshyn
Relation: fellow teacher and union activist

George, your leadership and advice was so valuable to me. I considered you a mentor and a friend. To all of his family, I thank you for sharing George with us for so many years. We are richer because of you.

From: Steve Rogers
Relation: Work

I am so very sad to hear of George’s passing. I knew George as both a strong advocate for teachers and as a gentle, compassionate person. When I first started working for the BCTF as a green lawyer amongst many unfamiliar faces, George always took the time to come and say hello and make sure I felt included. George was kind and patient with me while I learned the ropes and he was such a bright, friendly person to run into on the streets of Vancouver. I will miss George’s laugh and I will miss his heart.
My deepest condolences to his family.

From: Sylvia Bishop
Relation: BCTF co-worker and CEP 454 brother

George became a great friend and co-worker. I will remember his passion for life and living, his great sense of humour and commitment to union principles.

We are all lucky to have had him in our lives.
