Our sincere condolences to you and all your family Peggy. Will miss seeing him over the back fence as we have done since 1967. Will get to see you when I manage to get rid of this cold. Take care.

George and I worked together in the sixties.
He was a very easy man to work with. I met George one time at the driver test. He had just turned 80. We had a good time talking old times.

My sympathy to the Harris family I met George when he worked on our 911 system at London Police Communications Centre During recent years I frequently met him at London Police retirees monthly gatherings at Tiger Jacks He always had a smile and enjoyed a chat. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this sad time.
Sincerely, George Brunto

My deepest condolences to the entire Harris family. George was an amazing man and a great presence. His passion for all things, family, music and life was always present in everything he did. Always involved, always willing to drop whatever he was doing to help those in need and always looking for that special way to be a part of his surroundings. I pray you are all well and may you always be a source of strength to each other. Warmest thoughts and wishes. Lynn, your father was a special man. I still have fond thoughts and memories of his involvement in my life. Take best of care.
