George Penney was a true gentleman and a pleasure to have known. I first met George in 1970 and knew that he enjoyed life and especially his time at his cottage on the Vinland Road .
As my sons Mark and David’s grandfather, I know the respect and love that they have always had for George.
He’ll be missed by all but always remembered for the good, decent man that he was.

Charmaine and Family,
Please accept my sincere condolences.
