We, his family, are sad to announce the passing of our precious father and husband, George Reed. George passed away at St. Paul’s Hospital very suddenly on the eve of September 6th. George leaves behind his best friend and wife Leslie Gabriel, his loving son Morgan (Tiffany) Reed and twins, Connor and Mackenzie; his beloved daughter Bronwyn Reed (Carman); his sister Marina Stephanson and family; his brother Bill Reed and family; and his sister Mary Anne’s family. The Gabriel families will miss him dearly. Also left to mourn are Tracey White and Ric Stephen who were like his children. He is now at peace with his granddaughter Gabriella, his sister Mary Anne, his mother Ana, and his in-laws Vern and Elaine Gabriel. George was born on February 14, 1942. He grew up in Nipawin where he learned the mastery of baking. He worked hard as a baker and provided well for his family. Fortunately, he was able to retire early and enjoy his yard, garden, travelling to Mexico and other hot destinations and fishing at Tobin Lake. George will be missed dearly by all his family and friends. There will be an informal memorial for George Reed on Wednesday, September 14th, 2016, in our backyard at 122 Reindeer Rd., Saskatoon, from 2pm-4pm. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Saskatoon Food Bank in memory of George.
