In Celebration of

George William Tweedy

April 26, 1930 -  December 19, 2018

Passed peacefully after a month-long illness at Trillium Health Network (Mississauga Hospital) on December 19, 2018. Loving husband of Olwyn, 67 years married, who passed in October, father to Neale (Pamela) and John (Connie), loving grandfather to Thomas.

George was born in Blyth, England, the only child to Thomas and Mary-Emilie, but sadly at the age of 11 years lost his father who was killed in action aboard Royal Navy destroyer H.M.S. Vortigern, torpedoed and sunk by a German E-Boat in the English Channel off Cromer. At 17 years, George joined the British Army and was promoted to Lance Corporal in the 16/5th Queen’s Lancers Regiment serving in camps in Britain, Libya, and Egypt. The family emigrated to Canada in 1957 and after an 8 month period with the CP Police, George was accepted into the Metropolitan Toronto Police Force where he served in various downtown divisions and eventually promoted to the rank of Superintendent in charge of the Corporate Planning Unit, serving a total of 32 years. George was a skillful cabinet maker, clock builder and could repair anything mechanical or electrical. George could type 70 words a minute and had the most beautiful floral penmanship rarely seen. Special thanks to Trillium Health Network, their amazing staff of doctors and nurses provided heartfelt care in George’s last days. He is entrusted into the care of the Turner & Porter Neweduk-Erin Mills Chapel and will be interred at a private family gathering in the spring of 2019.
