<div itemprop="description">Dad passed away on October 30, 2018 at the age of 92. He was born in Rome, lived in Switzerland, Belgium and finally Holland, where he married the love of his life, Corrie. They moved to Canada in 1958, first to St. Andrews East, Quebec, eventually settling by the ocean in Mader’s Cove, Nova Scotia, where he lived a wonderful life, full of sailing and other adventures. He enjoyed working at Paceship Yachts/ABCO Plastics in Mahone Bay as chief engineer. He died in Ottawa, where he had moved to be near his eldest daughter, Juliet, for help when Corrie developed Alzheimer’s. Dad was a kind, loving and wonderful gentleman who will be greatly missed. George was the eldest son of Jutta and MC Escher. He is survived by his brothers Arthur (Switzerland) and Jan (France), his children Juliet (Neil) Hamilton, Ottawa, and Kathy (Michael) Corkum, New Glasgow, NS, and his five grandchildren: Scott and Daniel Hamilton and Amanda, Nicole and Josh Corkum. <br><br>Thanks so much to the staff at Riverpark Place for the love and care they’ve shown our father. <br><br>Cremation has taken place. In memoriam donations may be made to the Red Cross.</div>
