So sorry to hear of George’s passing. I knew him many years back now, when I lived in Stephenville and a bunch of us hung around together and were involved in Bay Theatre. What fun! To his family I would like to pass along my concolences . RIP George..

So sorry to hear of George’s passing. I will always remember his appreciation for and dedication to musical and liturgical life when we sang in the Cathedral choir. George had a big and kind heart, a good humour and a definite joy of life. He will be missed.

To Wilson;
Our thoughts and prayers are with you on the loss of your brother, George. We will forever remember his friendly smile, his humor, his love of food (both preparing and eating) and above all his love of fishing. When we last saw him at Pudops Lodge on Labour Day, little did we know it would be our last visit together. We will miss him.

To the family of George. I send you my sincere condolences. God bless you all.

So sorry to hear of Georges passing. My condolences to the family. May he rest in peace.

Words are inadequate to express my sadness about the loss of your dear brother. I only met George a few short years ago when I became involved at the cathedral but he became an instant friend. I will miss him too. My heartfelt thoughts and prayers to all the family!

The Day Family,

I (Harry) was shocked and saddened to read today of George’s early passing. We spent many years teaching together. George was a man of great faith. He possessed a quick wit and a keen sense of humour. He will be fondly remembered. As he would say, “You are at peace now with your Saviour my son.”

So sad to hear of George’s passing. George and I taught together for many years. We became great friends. Although we didn’t stay in touch after retirement I still have many fond memories of the time we spent together; his great voice, especially “The Fields of Athenry” his sense of humor, his kind heart and work ethic. I will always remember you George. Rest in peace my friend.

Edna , Wilson , Kerry and Family

I was so very sorry to hear of George’s passing. I enjoyed singing with him in the Cathedral Choir for several years, and I have many fond memories of his kindness and humour.

Rest in peace, George.

To Kerry and family..Deepest Sympathy. You are all in my thoughts and prayers…George was a very special person,.. God has gotten another special angel.

To the Day Family, my sincerest condolences. George will forever be in my thoughts and prayers. His amazing love of life and people, his abounding sense of humour, and for anyone lucky enough to have tasted his cooking, he will be forever cherished. Good bye my friend and thank you for the life long memories of 6 Macklin Place. I will forever consider it home.

I shall always be grateful to George for his service and loyalty as a principal tenor in the Cathedral choir during my tenure as organist there. I was honoured that he called me a friend. May he now lend his voice — and his humour — to the Heavenly Choir.

To the Day family. My sincere condolences on George’s passing. I have many a fond memory of the time spent with George while living in St. John’s. Those memories I will always cherish. God bless.

We are deeply saddened at the passing of George. Our deepest condolences to the Day families. George and I shared many good adventures together fishing for trout and cod. He would always say, “I had a wonderful time”, no matter what the weather was or whether we caught anything or not. He was not only a kind and gentle soul, but he was a great inspiration for his many friends.

We are so sorry to hear of George’s passing. We were neighbours for many years and he was so sweet, always sharing cod, jam, baked goods, and cherry tomatoes over the fence! He was a such a lovely, gentle man. He will be missed.

I was sorry to hear of George’s passing, I worked with him at the NLYC and remember him as a gentle, kind , respectful man. My condolences to the family.

Please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss. I knew George only for a few short years as a fellow choir member at the Cathedral, but I remember with appreciation, his warmth, his sense of humour, his lovely voice as he sang behind me, and his sense of faith. I am richer for having known him.

Condolences to George’s family and many friends. I will always remember his unique sense of humour and his many words of wisdom over the last thirty years. No Christmas card this year. Rest In Peace my friend

My deepest sympathy to George’s family, George was a very thoughtful and gentle soul. His smile, stories about his trouting trips or berry picking adventures will surely be missed. We always compared how many cakes we had made at Christmas time, he will surely be missed by many. RIP George and God speed my friend.

Day family,

My condolences to you on the loss of George. I got to know him from my years at the Cathedral and in the choir. He was a wonderful person who was always good for a laugh. He was so supportive and welcoming to everyone. He had a lovely voice and was an all around great person and he will be missed.
