Janice, Martin, Lloyd nad families,
What a wonderful long and fulfilled life your dad has had. I have known him all of my life as he was active in our community for years. I Would see him out and about and he always had a smile. Sending heartfelt sympathies on his passing as I know he will be missed.

George was a gentle man with a great laugh. He taught me the safe use of a 22 rifle, which I used about three times. I always look to my left as I go up highway 24 above Hornings Mills with fond memories of George. With warm regards, Jim Miles

To Janice, Martin and Lloyd. I am very sorry to hear your dad has passed. He was a kind gentle man. Many dinners we shared as family when we were young children at your mom and dads home. Cherrish the memories and he will always be watching over you all and his grand children.
Nancy Lane.

George was my mentor while he was at the helm of Dufferin County’s nascent Building Department. Fiercely independent and resistant to political influence, George was a student of the then new Ontario Building Code and applied it consistently and sensibly. He launched my career and was always generous with advice, anecdotes and insights formed from a lifetime of experience. A renaissance man, George was largely self taught. He was quick to adopt personal computers and grew his woodworking skills into crafting musical instruments. While our paths diverged in recent years, George’s spirit will remain close. Sincere condolences to his family and friends.

Janice, Lloyd and Martin,
Our most sincere condolences upon your loss. George was one of a kind, in a very special way.
My wife Jill and I met George in 1983 when he told both of us we were "crazy" to think about building an Earth Home.
A week later he thought we might have an idea that might work. Over the course of the summer that year we became friends.
To make a long story short, our "crazy" earth home became a reality with your father's guidance and innovative ideas.
He became our good friend, staying with us when he couldn't get home in the frigid winters of Dufferin county.
The Earth home no longer exists, but it worked beyond our wildest imagination thanks to your dad.
What a great guy your dad was. He will be in our thoughts and memories.
Again, our condolences upon your loss. The world lost a good man with your dad's passing.
Be well and stay safe.

Sincerely,

Jill and Graham Legge
