George Reynolds, age 82 years, passed away peacefully with family by his side on Wednesday September 10, 2014 in the Campbell River Hospital. He will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed by his wife of 54 years, Nan (Flynn), daughter Catherine, sons Stephen (Heather), John (Karen), and David, grandchildren Spencer, Claire, and Lauren.

He was posted to Goose Bay, Labrador where he and Nan were married. He transferred to Port Hardy, BC in 1967 where he served in the weather office until retirement.
Over the years George was active in the Tsusquana Singers and the Port Hardy Amateur Dramatic Society. He conducted a Scottish Country Dance Group and was a drummer in the North Island Highlanders Pipe Band. In his later years he played piano with the Coal Harbour Ceilidh Band.
Thank you to all for your kind messages of condolence.
