George Boulanger Choquette
December 24, 1917- April 13, 2013
Sadly, George passed away after a short illness at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Comox. He was predeceased by his first wife, Joan and his eldest son, Rick. He is survived by his loving wife, Evelyn and his children, Wayne (Susan), Chris (Marta) and Susanne (John), also his two grandsons, Baird and Travis, his step-children and families in New Zealand and Australia.
George was born in Calgary, Alberta and later moved on to the Kootenay’s in B.C. He was a geologist on numerous oil wells all through the prairies. He loved anything to do with rocks and fossils. During World War II, he served in the army in Italy and other places overseas.
One of his passions was sailing: which he did both on Kootenay Lake and in the coastal waters off Vancouver Island, while sailing in New Zealand, he met his current wife, Evelyn. George also travelled extensively through Europe, the Pacific and across Canada. In later life, he moved to Point Roberts, Washington and then to Comox to be closer to family.
A Celebration of George’s Life will be held at 473 Holly Place, Comox on Saturday, April 27, 2013. Friends are welcome to drop by between 2:00pm and 5:00pm.
Donations can be made in memory of George to St. Joseph’s Hospital, Comox. The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to the doctors and nursing staff at St. Joseph’s Hospital.
