November 16, 1979 – April 6, 2022
In Loving Memory ~
Daniel Joseph George, 42, formerly of the Comox Valley, BC, passed away unexpectedly at home, in Abbotsford, on April 6, 2022.
Dan was born in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, to Sandra (McDonald) and Carl George, on November 16th, 1979. When he was 3, his family moved to Thetis Island for a year, and then on to Vancouver Island, where he grew up.
In 2000, Daniel graduated from GP Vanier High School, and in 2000, attended Faith Mission Bible College in Scotland, where he met his wife-to-be, Hyun Jung (Lee). They married on July 10th, 2004, and had three boys, Aiden (14), Isaac (11) and Nathaniel (6). They lived the majority of their marriage in the Comox Valley, until their most recent move to Abbotsford.
Daniel spent his life outdoors, enjoying nature and the ocean, but so much more than that, was his love for God. Anyone that spent any time with Dan could see the passion burning in his heart for his beloved Jesus. It’s hard to sum up a person’s life in just a few sentences, but if I was to sum up his, I would say that Daniel lived his life, he didn’t waste it. He loved big, and he loved deep. He was always willing to lend a hand when needed and wouldn’t hesitate to give you the shirt off his back. He was an adventurer, explorer, treasure hunter, an incredibly hard worker, provider, friend, cousin, son, brother, husband, and the best father I have ever seen. To say that he is missed is an understatement. But, beyond the sting of death, is the hope of seeing him again, as he is now face to face with Jesus.
Daniel was very talented man with many skills. He was a faller, commercial fisherman, heavy duty truck driver, milwriter, youth pastor and most recent job he was a Canadian Coastguard.
Daniel is preceded in death by his mom, Sandy George, and his grandparents, Don McDonald, Viola McDonald, Purvis and Lillian George.
He is survived by his wife Jung and their three boys (Aidan, Isaac, and Nate), his sister Sharon and her husband Joshua, his dad Carl, father-in-law Soo keun Lee, Mother-in-law Young Ae Sim, sister-in-law Eun Kyoung Lee, her husband Namwon Kim, Sister-in-law Hae kyoung Lee, her husband Hyung Jin Kim and numerous aunts, uncles, nephews, and cousins on both sides.
A memorial service will be held at the Comox Community Baptist Church, 1250 Anderton Road, Comox, BC at 2pm, Saturday, April 30th.
Please come and join the Celebration of his Life.
