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
