It is with a great deal of sadness that we acknowledge the passing of an amazing man, husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and our friend, George Thomas Meheden on January 16,2023 at the age of 82 years.


George was born at the "Old Galt" Hospital in Lethbridge A.B. on May 2,1940 to George and Caroline Meheden. His formative years were spent on the farm in the Sunnyside district, working alongside his father   who instilled in him strong work ethics and to do everything to the best of his ability.

In 1961, George married Anne Kerr, a city girl, and they set off on life's adventures for almost 62 years.

1963 George hired on with Dowell working mostly in Northern Canada until he transferred to Dowell Schlumberger in 1969. George and family moved to Libya North Africa. Arriving just in time for the Libyan Revolution. Next on to Venezuela South America, London England, Antwerp Belgium, Aberdeen Scotland and working the North Sea. before finally returning to Canada


In 1991 he took early retirement due to health concerns.  While he was in Malta, George had been diagnosed as having Ankylosing Spondylitis., which is Rheumatoid Arthritis of the Spine.


In1992 George decided he needed to keep busy and active, so he purchased a Motel in Creston, B.C. and operated it for almost 25 years.  He enjoyed tending to his gardens and orchard, building furniture, renovating, and making amazing muffins for hotel guests. He especially enjoyed his Grandchildren spending all their summer holidays helping? him. 


He filled our home with music, tools, pets, noise, memories, and books. George was a voracious reader of Canadian War history and Egyptology.

He was a private person who absolutely loved his family, lived his life to the fullest, trying to not let Rheumatoid Arthritis slow him down. He gave us such wonderful, amazing memories.


               We will not mourn his passing, We will celebrate his life....
