Obituary for George Alexander McArthur

In loving Memory of
George Alexander McArthur
October 5, 1938 - March 13, 2022
Our one and only George passed quietly from a stroke at the Headwaters Health Care Centre, Orangeville, on Sunday morning, March 13th, 2022 at the age of 83. Beloved husband and best friend of wife Gwen (nee Wilson); dearest Dad of Kim and Dave Graham, Shari and Steve Adair, Sharon and Brian Cranstone. Cherished Papa of Jeff (Natalie), Scott (Meagan), Dylan (Brandie), Kaitlin, and Sydney (Kevin). Much loved Great Grand-Papa of Lyla, Wyatt, Sully, and Mya. George was the son of the late Wilfred and Mabel (Thompson) McArthur of Erin, Ontario. Predeceased by older brother Doug (Joan). Lovingly remembered by brothers Jim (Karen), Gord (Reta), Roy (Elfi), and sisters Helen (Don Ruud), and Joyce (John Doucette). Also, in the hearts of brother-in-law John Wilson (Hanna), and sisters-in-law Judy (Harry Smith), Nancy (the late Archie McArthur, cousin), Jane (Pat Villadiego), Peggy (Alex Lacombe) and Terry (Ron Reid). George will be greatly missed by a multitude of dear nieces, nephews, cousins, many treasured friends and neighbours.
George was well known in the Erin area where he operated his business, McArthur’s Automotive & Supply, for close to 40 years. His love of vehicles made him the perfect “parts man”!
