Born on April 5, 1929 in Grenfell, Sask. to Katherine and Jacob Hahn, George was predeceased by his beloved wife, Ruth, of 64 years; brothers, Victor, John, Albert, William; and sisters, Martha and Rose; in-laws, Dorothy and Jeff Hunter and Lois and Geoff Holthouse.
Left to mourn are: daughterDenise; son Greg and partner Nancy; grandchildren, Jessica and Francis; brother Edward (Mavis); sisters, Alma and Dora; and numerous nieces and nephews.
George’s lengthy working career included employment at Powell’s Hardware, Grenfell Co-op and the Windsor Theatre, which he owned and operated for many years. As quite the entertainer himself, he thoroughly enjoyed the movie business. In his retirement years, after having obtained his real estate licence, he worked for Century 21. He was a well-respected member of the town council, Chamber of Commerce and other civic organizations.
George was noted for his kind-heartedness, his sense of humour, wonderful tenor voice and the ability to play guitar, piano, organ, banjo and drums. He loved to fish and eagerly shared stories that went with his fishing successes. He was a wonderful husband and father who kept us in stitches with his pranks.
The family wishes to thank the Grenfell and District Pioneer Home and Parkridge Centre Special Care Home, Saskatoon for their excellent care of George over the past three years.
Cremation has taken place. A celebration of George’s life will be held at Peace Lutheran Church, Grenfell, in the spring at a later date (to be announced).
Donations in his name may be made to Peace Lutheran Church Grenfell, or the Canadian Diabetes Association.
