October 20, 1960 - May 19, 2018
It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our son, brother, uncle, adopted Dad and friend, George D. Rondeau. After a lengthy illness that he fought hard and courageously right until the end, he passed away at the Health Sciences Centre on Saturday, May 19, 2018.
Left to mourn and fondly remember George's memories are his Mum, Doris Rondeau-Trump, his sister Corinna and husband Ken Loxton, nephews Dustin, fiancée Carleigh and Tyler, his sister Kathy and partner Vince Morgielewicz, nephew Christian and niece Alyssa, sister Doreen, niece Tarla and husband Rob Jorginson and their children Jade, Sabriena and Lexi, nephew Jayson and partner Cassie, also brothers Stan and Mike. George also leaves behind his "adopted" daughter, Little Kathy, and his "adopted" granddaughters, Harmony and Kylah; also left to mourn is his best friend, John Mackenzie and wife Inga, and their daughters Mona and Harlene, George also leaves many cousins and friends behind.
George was very close with and absolutely adored his Mum.
George was employed with the City Of Winnipeg for numerous years and would still be doing "his" parks if not for his illness.
George was a true blue Montreal Canadians fan, many times we had huge fights over who's team was the best as we all were (of course) Winnipeg Jets fans. Wow, some of those arguments were heated... and then throw Johnny in with his "Nope, it's the Toronto Maple Leafs all the way" routine, and only a few people knew that Johnny really didn't like the Leafs, he only said he did to get a rise out of George. I just wish I could hear him secretly cheering on my Jets - but taunting me about how bad they were doing - but we all knew he was as proud of them making it as far as they did as we all were, he just wouldn't admit it. Well, to us anyway. We will all miss those Hockey Nights in Canada with him.
Another thing that George was crazy about was his sister Doreen's meatballs: he could eat the whole pot if we let him.
George loved to joke and make people laugh, with his many different sayings, "skeeter" and "arse" were probably two of his favourite sayings. He made up nicknames for probably everyone he ever met.
We all have our very own memories of George, he was a very giving and caring man, helping out everyone in need when ever he could.
We will love and miss you always George.
A come and go Celebration Of Life will be held from 1:00-4:00 pm on Sunday, June 3, at Carriage House North, 535 Leila Avenue.
