George was born in Rouleau, Saskatchewan. In 1936, at age 13, he returned to Scotland with his parents. At age 17 he began work as a mechanic in Ellon, Aberdeenshire. It was during this time that George met a pretty young lass named Muriel Watt and they were married in 1948. The family later moved to Laurencekirk, Kincardineshire. In 1964 the family immigrated to Moose Jaw and George began work as a mechanic. In 1975 he and his partner, Jim Charters, opened Palliser Service on Caribou Street West. George had many interests; he was a member of the Kiwanis Club, was one of the founding members of the Scottish Society, was an ardent volunteer at MOTIF, and loved to dance.
