MACPHERSON, George Charles

August 23, 1931 – November 28, 2017
George was predeceased by son Gordon, brother Malcolm (Peggy) and Alan (Debbie). He is survived by his wife Maree, daughter Evelynn (Ken), sister Faye (Aubrey) and brothers Bev (Betty) and Murdock (Pearl) as well as all of his cousins, nieces and nephews from Cape Breton. George worked for the City of Calgary (Engineering) and also volunteered for the City Golf Courses for many years. George was a Korean War Vet (Provo Corps) and was an in valued member of the Royal Canadian Legion as a Past President, Zone Commander and District Commander. George and Maree had a great life together in work and in play. In 1987 they sold everything and became full time “Geritol” Gypsies. They golfed in every province and territory in Canada and eventually settled in Arizona enjoying the good life. Health problems put an end to the travelling and they made the move to the interior of BC for the last 9 years. George slipped away peacefully with Maree by his side . . . FINALLY free of her practical jokes ! He left a lot of broken hearts and will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
