RADUL – George
After 88 years of projects and adventures George Radul passed away peacefully on August 17, 2005. Recently predeceased by his wife of 53 years Marnie (nee Lucas), George leaves daughter Judy Radul, son-in-law Michael Turner, sisters, Ellen Strachan, Betty Afanasiev, and brother Gordon Radul (Ruth), nieces and nephews including Lynne Koopman (Larry) and Chris Zarowski as well as other family and friends. We would like to express our gratitude to Gail Hesterman of The Cedars for her thorough and genuine care in the past months. George was born in 1917 in the village of East Braintree Manitoba. In 1967 the family settled in Maple Ridge and George worked at Oakalla prison for several years. Following that he was the proprietor of the Maple Ridge Golf Course for a decade. He was famous for cooking up to 40 steaks at once on the giant BBQ and infamous for insisting that last night’s coffee was still perfectly good at 7 am. George always had projects on the go: teaching industrial first aid; writing greeting card jokes; making driftwood sculptures; building a cabin in Sechelt; constructing a clay oven in the back yard; buying cars, properties and animals on impulse (mom we got a goat!) and playing snooker with his buddies. George will be remembered as a loving father and an independent spirit.
