Sad news

It is with sad news that I report the passing of another member of the Sturgeon Point community.

George Ollerhead passed away on Thursday, February 28th.  Below is his obituary from the Globe and Mail. 

Our thoughts and prayers goes out to the family.


George Elliott Ollerhead of London, passed away peacefully at Victoria Hospital, with his family by his side, on Thursday, February 28, 2013, in his 79th year. He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Susanne (McEwen); sons William (Koo) of Toronto, and Rory (Cathy) of Newmarket; grandchildren Elliott, Cameron, Nicholas, and Jackson; and brother Robin (Maureen) of Guelph. He will be greatly missed also by his extended family, and many friends. George grew up in London and earned a degree at University of Western Ontario before obtaining an MA at the University of Toronto. His lifelong passion for teaching took him from London to Texas, Petrolia, Ghana, Lakefield, and North Bay. After devoting 24 years to his craft at Canadore College and Nipissing University, he retired in 1993. He will be remembered for his jovial and gregarious enjoyment of life, insatiable curiosity, and devotion to his family. Cremation will be followed by private family interment arrangements. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to a charity of your choice.
