AMOS, George Michael
November 7, 1948 – October 13, 2019

George was born in New Westminster, BC, and raised in the Greater Vancouver area. Dad met Mom while attending UBC and were married shortly afterwards. He spent most of his working years as an engineer with various companies in the oil patch in Calgary. He also spent some time in his earlier career in London, England, and also in Fort St. John, BC. He and Mom continued to live in Calgary during retirement.

George liked the outdoors, travelling and woodworking. Together with his family, he spent time in the outdoors biking, hiking, and cross-country and downhill skiing, in and around the Kananaskis, Banff and Calgary areas, but also in BC. He and Mom travelled to every province and territory, except for Nunavut. They also travelled through the US, Caribbean, Europe and China.

George was a dedicated husband, father, grandfather and friend. He spent time volunteering at the churches they attended – St. Paul’s Anglican, and St. Andrew’s Presbyterian. He and Mom also volunteered with Side By Side, a dementia support group.

He is survived by his wife of 46 years, Maureen; children Mike (Dana), their children Brayden, Logan and Bryony; and Colleen (Steve), and their children Teanna and Kirsten. He was predeceased by his father, William, mother, Wilma, and brother, Bill. George will be lovingly remembered and missed by his family, extended family and many friends.

The family extends their sincere thanks and appreciation to all the people of the Tom Baker Cancer Centre, the Sage Centre, and Chinook Hospice.

A Funeral Service will be held at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, 703 Heritage Dr. SW on Friday, October 18, 2019 at 1:30 pm.

If friends so desire, donations may be made in George’s memory to Calgary Food Bank or the charity of your choice.

In addition to the qualities described, add modesty. Not many would know that George graduated at the top of the class and received the Governor General's medal at UBC. We were classmates and have kept in touch since. Good bye, my friend.
