Cindy, family and friends, words can’t begin to express the shock and sympathy i feel for your loss. I only hope you all find comfort in the belief that even though George was called up to heaven far too early he’ll be waiting patiently to be with you all again when the good lord says it’s that time.

Sincerest condolences and god bless

Cindy, Kayla, Tyler, and family,
I’m so very sorry to hear of George’s passing. I spent a lot of good times with him during my time at Stratos. We had some great laughs and he taught me a lot way back then. He was always up for anything and we had many laughs over the years. I hold the memories I have of working with George in a special place and will remember him fondly.

I’m very sorry for your loss, sincere condolences to you all. Rest in Peace ole buddy George.

Cindy, Kayla, Tyler, and extended family
Very sorry to hear of George’s passing. I remember the early days of my career at Stratos when he’d love to give the young engineers the gears but at the same time actually teach us the ropes. Always had that sly grin and never quite knew what he was about to say. He was a ticket for sure, and we will all remember him fondly.
I’m very sorry for your loss and sincere condolences to you all. Rest easy George.

Take care .

To the DuPont Family,
Please accept our sincerest condolences. George was a very kind and generous neighbour, and we’re very saddened by his sudden passing…. May he rest in peace.

Cindy, Kayla, and Tyler, so sorry to hear the tragic news of George’s passing. I first met him almost 20 years ago when this larger-than-life character joined me to help get a new Scout group going in Paradise. I was immediately stuck by his fun personality, intelligence, and perseverance. George was that guy who could make anything work and brought out the best in everyone around him. I was fortunate to see him at work again when he asked me to join him in starting up the minor hockey association. Under his strong leadership PMHA got the best start possible wining the Hockey NL association of the year award in our first year.
George gave so much of himself to his community and has left countless people feeling a great sense of loss. None as much as Cindy, Kayla, and Tyler who he loved dearly and spoke of often. We can all hang tight to the many wonderful memories as we mourn his passing.

Sending our deepest condolences to your family, take care.

It has been many years since I last talked to George and finding out today of his sudden passing was difficult. Whether it was in high school, in the community or through work at Stratos, George was a generous and easy going guy that was the centre of everything he did. I really enjoyed his humour and his fierce dedication to his family, friends and co workers. He will be missed.

My prayers are with you Cindy and the rest of the family.

Cindy, Kayla and Tyler… I can’t believe this has happened. We are so very sorry to hear of George’s passing. I hadn’t seen him in a few years… but as you know, we spent quite a bit of time together at the rink in years past. Nobody was more giving of his time as a volunteer than George. Condolences from the Purchase family to you all. Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time.

Still hard to believe
Lost one of my best friends, He was larger than life, he would do anything for anyone, treated everyone like family. One of the hardest workers I know. When you think of a family man, it was George , going to miss you and our hunting trips,our chats and good laughs , and our meals. He was an amazing host did not want to see anybody get up from the table to get something. I think everyone needs a little bit of George in them, ,We will carry on your legacy going to Miller Town, Tyler & Kayla are amazing , Just like mom and dad, Love you Buddy going miss you

Very sincere condolences to George’s wife (Cindy)and children and to his Mom (Mary), his sister (Jacqueline) and the whole of his family.

Tara Williams Bowering

So sad to hear of George’s sudden passing.. he was a friendly man who gave much to the community. No doubt he left much to be grateful for.

George was a man who thought of others first. I had the honour of serving on the Paradise Minor Hockey Association board with George for three years. He put the kids first and was always making sure that if a child wanted a game of hockey they were going to be on the ice no matter their circumstance. He had a smile and laugh that would light up the darkest of days. I was lucky to have known George. My deepest condolences to you all at this very difficult time.

Jacqui, Mary, Cindy and families. Our deepest sympathy on the passing of George. My thoughts will be with you during this time.

So sorry to hear this.. condolences to the family.

We are sorry to hear of George’s passing. I have great memories of working with George as well as spending time with him hunting and of course fishing and snowmobiling at Indian Bay. Rest easy George.

So sorry to hear about George’s passing. Condolences to his family and friends. May he Rest In Peace.

The Dupont family came into my life when I began playing hockey, George was my coach for many years and I have so many happy and fun memories of being on his team. I started playing hockey a lot later then the rest of our teammates but George was always so encouraging and gave me the confidence to put myself out there. From that came a great friendship with his daughter Kayla. Who I hold dear to my heart as well as her fiancée Chris . The entire Dupont family always welcomed me with open arms and with the news of Georges passing my heart hurts knowing that all of these beautiful people are hurting tremendously. You are all never far from my mind. Sending you so much love now and always!

Cindy and family, I was so saddened to hear of George’s passing. I remember so many good times we had at Stratos. I hope the happy memories shared in the coming days will be a source of comfort for you. My sincere condolences.

I have so many great memories of George that bring the biggest smile to my face. My heartfelt condolences to Cindy, Tyler, and Kayla ❤.

Sharing in your sorrow. With love and friendship.
