It is with great sadness that we an-

nounce the passing of our dear

Uncle George. George came

to Barriere late in his life, fol-

lowing his nephew and his wife

(Henry & Lee-Ann McKintuck)

when they moved here in

2004. He felt it was the ‘best

place yet’ and for George it def-

initely was. George had been a

quiet bachelor all his life and

soon came to think of the

YPRS as home, the residents

and staff, his extended family.

His team and table mate,

Edgar, was a good friend and

could be relied on to help haul

George’s scooter out of a ditch

when it got stuck. George

loved to visit us at the farm. He

would ride around on his bright

red quad, looking to see what

we had been up to. He would

visit different parts of the prop-

erty, then settle down for a

beer and a smoke next to the

river. Always keeping an eye

out for bears. He delighted in

stories about wildlife and the

sasquatch and sometimes had

a few tales of his own to tell.

We’ll miss you George and

Thanks, you were an awe-

some Uncle and friend.
