<div itemprop="description">George Beverley Smith<br>(June 6, 1939 - February 19, 2017)<br><br>It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of a dear husband, father, grandpa, brother, uncle and friend. George passed away on Sunday, February 19, 2017 in Calgary, Alberta leaving behind his loving wife of 53 years, Gail, his children: Kevin (Janet) Smith - (grandchildren: Hannah, Lara and Ian), Darren (Sharon-Marie) Smith - (granddaughters: Kayla-Marie, Hayley and Kennedy), Allison (Bruce) Stephen - (grandchildren: Ella, Sam and Mack); and his younger sister Jane (Ron) Roper. <br><br>He was born in Cottam, Ontario and moved with his family to Killam, Alberta then to Calgary and finally to Edmonton as a boy. George was truly one of those unique people whom everyone loved and respected. <br><br>As a father, he was a family man and role model who, with Gail, provided a home full of love and respect. The family has a lifetime of happy memories; from spending weekends on the farm near Kinsella, Alberta, summer camping trips and fishing, to later spending summers at Mara Lake in British Columbia and winters in Mesa, Arizona. He loved being outdoors, working on the farm, camping, fishing, golfing and playing tennis but most of all he loved people. If the value created during a lifetime can be measured by how many people consider you a friend he was one of the wealthiest people in the world. <br><br>He will be greatly missed by his friends from Malmo Community, Mara Lake, the Propane industry and Carriage Manor in Mesa, Arizona as well as a large extended family of cousins, nieces and nephews. <br><br>George spent his working career of 46 years at Mutual Propane in Edmonton, a business started in part by his father. He was a well-respected member of his industry and had many close friends that he enjoyed playing golf with at the annual Propane Association tournament. <br><br>George was predeceased by his parents Orville and Betty Smith and his Sister Joy Armstrong. <br><br>The family thanks the doctors and staff at the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute for giving us extra time with Dad.<br><br>In lieu of flowers the family asks for Donations to be made to the Alzheimer Society of Canada or the Heart and Stroke Foundation in memory of George.<br></div>
