The family would like to extend heartfelt appreciation to the wonderful staff at Hazelton Place Retirement Home and for the warm care provided by the many caregivers over the years from Optimum Care Health Services.  We are also very grateful to the team from the Sinai Health Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care.


George will be remembered as a true gentleman, a man of character, and a man admired by many. His support of family was unwavering. He will be missed.
