1918   George William Short  2018

We are sorry to report the passing of WW II Veteran George Short on March 16, 2018 at Caressant Care, Arthur.  George, in his 100th year was the devoted husband of Florence Short, loving father of Daryle (Gloria), Judy (Henry) and the late Roy (1986).  George will be sadly missed by his grandsons Brandon (Ashley) and Darren and great-grandsons Brody and Avery.  George was predeceased by his wife Emily (1970).

George originally trained as an infantry man but served overseas with the Royal Canadian Medical Corps, having travelled to England on the Hospital Ship Lady Nelson. George was a highly respected citizen of Erin having served the community in many capacities and was a noted supporter of the young people in the sports field. As a long-term member of the Erin Branch 442 of the Royal Canadian Legion George was interested and active in preserving the legacy of the men and women of Erin that served in the armed services, particularly during WW II.
