OSBALDESTON, George Joseph Osbaldeston, Obituary | Print |

OSBALDESTON, George Joseph -

Peacefully, at St. Joseph’s Hospital at the age of 86, after a series of illnesses over the past several years, on Wednesday June 25, 2014.

George is survived by his beloved wife of 63 years, Frances Ellen Osbaldeston (née Walsh). George and Frances met while in high school, and married in 1951.

He is survived by their five children: Gregory, Elizabeth (Bob), Ellen (Rob), Nora (Mark) and Mark (Steve). George is survived as well by his six grandchildren (Jonathan, Jessica, Andrew, Adam, Caitlin and Chloe) and one great-grandchild, Isla.

He is also survived by his brothers Bernard (Phyllis) and Gordon.

After graduating from the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto, George interned at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Hamilton. He practiced family medicine on Hamilton Mountain for forty years, retiring in 1991.

Next to his family, George loved the practice of medicine, and considered it a privilege to care for his patients.

As a physician, George recognized the excellent care he received from his physicians and nurses, as well as from the personal support workers who attended him at home during his final illnesses. George felt blessed to be able to spend his final years in the home that he loved. Part of George’s care was regular blood transfusions and he was grateful to the anonymous donors whose generosity benefited him in a tangible and direct way.

In his spare time, George enjoyed fishing, golfing and tennis, and was not deterred from enthusiastically pursuing any of them (despite his own assessment of his “mediocre” abilities in all of them).

A funeral mass will be held on Saturday June 28th at 10 am, at Sacred Heart Church, 19 Viewpoint Avenue, Hamilton Ontario. Private interment to take place at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Hamilton and Halton or the St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation.
