George McAfee

Obituary of George Weldon McAfee


Passed away in Toronto, on November 26, 2022, at the age of 97. Predeceased by his wife, Rachael, George was the beloved father of Ian of Gabriola Island and Leslie (Greg Cooper). Grandfather to Garett Cooper.


Born in Prince Rupert, BC, George came east when he joined the CBC in the 1950s. Starting out in the accounting department, he eventually found his niche as a unit manager in the Arts and Science department. His years working on The Nature of Things gave him an opportunity to see much of the world, including the Galapagos Islands, at a time when they were relatively untouched.


A private cremation has taken place. As per his wishes, George's ashes will be returned to Prince Rupert, the home that was always in his heart.
