“George Bieber is 94 years young and an inspiration to all that know him,” says Comox Recreation program director Mandy Johns.
George was employed for 27 years as a mechanic in the Canadian air force, four of which were spent stationed in England during the Second World War.
George has been interested in physical fitness for most of his life. He loved to run during his lunch breaks, stopping along the way to do chin-ups and push-ups. He can still do more chin-ups than most men less than half his age.
George moved to the Comox Valley in 1997 and promptly began visiting the Comox Community Centre’s fitness studio.
The Comox Recreation staff surprised George with a birthday cake, a letter of congratulations from Mayor Paul Ives and a plaque for being their most inspirational customer.
