Tribute

On Saturday October 17, 2015, Mr. Georges Giroux of Oliver passed away after a brave fight with cancer at the South Okanagan General Hospital at the age of 71 years.

He also enjoyed cross-country motorcycle road trips, cruising to Alaska, Mexico and Hawaii. Georges had a wide variety of hobbies including art, playing music, cooking, golfing at Fairview, singing with the town choir as well as the Desert Aires and he enjoyed a fine glass of scotch.

A funeral service will be held at 11:00 A.M. Friday October 23, 2015 at Christ the King Catholic Church. Please wear casual attire. Interment and committal will follow at the Oliver Municipal Cemetery. A celebration of life reception in the church lower hall will follow the committal.

It is with sad hearts we wish to express our deep heartfelt condolences in the loss of a unique and very special man – our George. How we will surely miss him.. We find comfort in the hope we read in the scripture found at John 5, 28-29: Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgement.
