VOTH, George R. passed away suddenly at home September 24, 2003 at the age of 85 years.
George was born November 16, 1917 in Hepburn, Sask. and grew up on a wheat farm. He married Eleanor Loewen from Mennen, Sask. on June 29, 1941 and the couple moved to B.C. where they raised their four children in Langley. George was active with the Volunteer Fire Dept. and coached Little League while he was employed at Valley Lumber. He was also involved in the Elks Club as well as the Langley Rod and Gun Club. He loved to hunt and fish in his spare time.
George and Eleanor eventually divorced after the children were grown and George moved to Williams Lake where he worked in a supervisory capacity in sawmill construction. He met Mary Kathleen Corcoran and they married in 1978. They lived in Prince George and Fraser Lake for many years and moved back to Langley in 1996.
George is survived by his loving wife of 25 years, Kay.
