He was predeceased by his parents and half-brother Benny Lutz, from PEI. The family would like to thank long-time friend Joan Carter, of Avondale, who often helped care for George when he began to develop dementia, and the compassion shown by the Northwood Home caregivers who helped George over the past year. Special thanks also goes out to the doctors and nursing staff who tried to make his final days as comfortable as possible.
