Condolences for the family of “George Farr Wardlaw”

Condolence from David and Sheila Lewis on January 6th, 2022 6:44 pm

Our thoughts and prayers are with you Fern and David at this difficult time. George was such a great farmer and always had a kind word for everyone. Cherish your memories.

Condolence from Glen and Christina Early on January 6th, 2022 8:31 pm

Fern and David –
So sorry to hear about George.
Our thoughts turn to all the fun times during visits together, the extended family gatherings, the Christmas celebrations at the farms. George was not one to shy away from giving advice and as the years go by, he was usually right. He didn’t seem to mind getting thrown in the pool by a bunch of teenagers … nor did he worry about getting euchred by taking a chance and “making it on the 9”.
One more visit would’ve been nice, George. Looking forward to your predictions about space travel coming true. You’ve earned your rest, George. May you Rest In Peace.
Glen and Christina.

Dear Fern, David, & Ruth,

So sorry to hear of George’s passing. I always appreciated a visit with George when we would meet at the funeral home or at the Remembrance Day service at Laurel Hill Cemetery. George always had some interesting comments and was always willing to share his experiences. Blessings to the family.

Condolence from Gary Bruce McKinnon on January 8th, 2022 5:42 am

We offer our condolences on this sad occasion. George was a member of the old school where his word was his bond. For some reason, that school doesn’t exist anymore. He was a valued member of the community and particularly of his church. We mourn his passing.
