MISSINGHAM, George - (September 2, 1927 - October 17, 2020)
With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of George on October 17, 2020 in Toronto.
He will be sadly missed by his wife of 56 years, Marion, his daughters Laura Freeland (Chris) and Lynn Topp (David) and four grandsons, Steven, Michael, Alexander and Justin.
George was born in Brisbane, Australia and came to Canada in 1954. George obtained his Civil Engineer degree at the University of Toronto and worked for the Ministry of the Environment for many years until he retired.
He enjoyed a lengthy retirement and was able to continue pursuing his passion for travelling and gardening. Fiercely independent and principled, his spirit lives on in his family.
The family would like to acknowledge and thank the staff at Cummer Lodge who have cared for George for the past 2 years, in particular his favourite caregivers Frieda and Marlene and Dr. Zeldin for their compassion and support during the final years of George's life.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, there will be no public visitation or service.
The family asks for those who wish to honour George to make a donation to the Alzheimer Society of Canada or a CHARITY of their choice.
