June 22,1921 – September 29,2016
It is with a heavy heart and great sadness to announce the
passing of George Inouye due to natural causes. George was
predeceased by his wife Fukiko and his son Timothy (Cher). He is survived by his sons Stephen (Patricia), James, Paul, daughter in-law Cher and several loving grandchildren. George was born and raised in Surrey, B.C. and eventually moved to the Interior of British Columbia where he established his own logging camp in Dixon Creek. After marrying Fukiko in Hiroshima, Japan, they moved to Barriere in 1965. George was well known in the community through his work and multiple volunteer efforts ranging from the Lion’s Club, Fire Department and Boy Scouts to helping maintain the outdoor icerink. He was always fond of being part of the community of Barriere and would help out at any time it was requested. There will be no formal funeral at the
request of George. A memorial service will be held in early summer 2017. All other funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Drake Cremation & Funeral Services of Barriere (250) 672- 1999.
