George Clifford Apps
September 25, 1926 - April 6, 2018
Peacefully on the evening of April 6th, with family by his side, George set sail on his final voyage for ports unknown at the age of 91.
Left to cherish his memory are his wife of 66 years, Eunice, son Clifford, daughter Karen (Ron), grandchildren Shaun (Natalie), Caitlynn (Matthew), and Michael.
Born in England, he joined the Royal Navy and served in WWII. He came to Canada in 1947 and joined the Royal Canadian Navy in 1951 and served for 25 years as a Naval photographer.
George was a member of the Winnipeg White Ensign Naval Club and served in their Colour Party proudly carrying the White Ensigns. He was an avid stamp collector and member of numerous clubs and associations. He always had a smile and a story.
Memorial service will be held at the Chapel of the Good Shepherd, 2235 Silver Avenue (west off Whytewold), April 20th at 2:00 pm, Padre L. Fox officiating.
In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to the Naval Museum of Manitoba or the Lung Association
