Signoretti, George

With great sadness we wish to announce the passing of George Signoretti on Saturday, May 8, 2010 at the age of 86 years. George was born in Kamloops on June 19, 1923. He leaves to mourn his passing, his wife Helen, of 46 years. His daughter Lynette, his son David (Saundra) and his three very much adored grandchildren Sydney, Tyra and Elias.
George is also survived by his three sisters, Dina (Angus) McGregor of Victoria, Iola Wilcox of Terrace and Elda Lane of Kamloops and their respective families. George was predeceased by his parents, Maria and Nick and his brother in law Harold Wilcox.
Near the end of the 2nd World War, George served in Holland in the Artillery Division. After his discharge he began working for the C.N.R. and retired in 1985 after 37 years service. He then went into partnership with Kurt Keir Training and racing quarter horses. He loved being outdoors, hunting, fishing and gardening until failing health prevented further involvement.
George was a very well liked person, by many associates and friends and was especially grateful to Gordon Bremner, friend since childhood and Ralph Humphrey, who both picked him up regularly for coffee visits.
Our family would like to express our gratitude to the many doctors and nurses who have cared for George: Dr. Reid, Dr. Schmidt, Dr. Treissman, Dr. Tung (Vancouver) and Dr. Michaud and Dr. Chevalier.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation, 311 Columbia Street, Kamloops, BC V2C 2T1 would be welcomed.

After a long battle with cancer, we regret to announce that Dad has passed away peacefully at the age of 72 years in his home with his family by his side. Dad was born in Last Lake, Alberta and moved to Victoria with his family in 1946. From there the family moved to Chemainus where he grew up and made many friends; Shaky, Skimp, Mike, Marks, just to name a few. Dave is predeceased by his sister Emma, his mother Evelyn, his father Roy and will be laid to rest with his parents at the Chemainus Cemetery.
Dad worked for Chemainus Towing on the tugs with Shaky for many years as well as at McMillan Blodel as a faller, he worked in the long Shoreman’s Union and bartended at the Green Lantern Hotel for many, many years. Dad was a jack of all trades and was willing to try anything. He taught us to always do the best at anything we tried. Dad met and married the love of his life in 1960 and started their family of four children, whom he leaves behind: Danny (Tina), Cheryl (Joe), Donna (Walter) and Bonnie (Merv). Mom and Dad sadly divorced in later years. He then met another love of his life, Lil, they spent 25 years together and he helped her raise her one son Mike (Barb). Dad is also survived by Lil’s other children; Gary, Annette (Don), Lyle and Barry (Donna). He leaves behind 18 grandchildren, 8 great- grandchildren, his younger brother and best friend Howard, his older brother Ed (Darlene) as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins from Alberta and surrounding areas. Dad will be dearly missed by his hunting, camping and fishing buddies; Wayne and Eileen “Bernie”, sister in law Shirley (Barry), brother in law Dennis (Evelyn) and his good friends from Kamloops.
Dad loved camping, fishing, boating, hunting and being with his friends and family. He was a straight forward guy and never held anything back. You could always hear dad with his loud voice and happy demeanour.
Our family would like to extend a special and heartfelt gratitude to Doctor Reid’s aversion, many home care nurses and the R.N’s for their compassionate care for Dad.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the BC Cancer Society. A Celebration of David`s Life will be held between 1:00 pm and 6:00 pm on June 5, 2010 at the Chemainus Legion in Chemainus, BC.
