GEORGE WILLIAM CHADBURN

George William Chadburn passed away

with his family by his side January 28,

2017 at the age of 91 years. He will be

remembered and sadly missed by his

loving wife of 68 years, Hazel Chadburn,

children Dianne Chadwick and Mark

Chadburn, both of Summerland,

BC, 6 grandchildren, and 13 great

grandchildren. He was predeceased

by daughter Sylvia Ann (1952) and son

Grant William (2006).

George was born in Winnipeg, MB

on April 9, 1925. He joined the Royal

Canadian Navy (right out of school) and then moved to Summerland

with his parents in 1945. He married Hazel in 1948, working at

Cornwall Cannery and then Brenda Mines until he retired. His

orchard was his hobby and passion, being one of the first to bring

Ambrosia apples to Summerland. Raising a family and dedication

to his work and orchard kept Dad busy. He enjoyed several ocean

fishing trips with his boys.

George’s family would like to thank Drs. Kindberg and Bannerman,

the palliative care team and the Summerland Medical Centre for all

their compassionate care. A Memorial Gathering will be held in the

spring. Memorial tributes may be made to BC SPCA South Okanagan

Similkameen Branch, 2200 Dartmouth Dr., Penticton, BC V2A 4C2.
