George “Barrie” Ward
Beloved son of Carl and Phyllis Ward (dec), brother of Douglas (dec). Loving father of Terry Corless (Shawn - dec), Mathew Ward and wife Shelley and son John Ward (dec). Beloved Grandpa to Nathan Corless, Raeanne Corless, Tyson Ward and Brianna Ward. Great Grandpa to Owen Corless.
Loved friend to many, especially Don and Rose Deimert, Bob Parker and Bridgette Arndt and long time friend to Dave Hill who was best man at both of Barrie’s two weddings – Joyce and Nita (both dec).
Dad was an active and proud supporter of the Port Alberni Legion. He lived for Remembrance Day from the Poppy collection to the speaking to students in local schools as to the importance of Remembrance Day.
The family would like to thank the caring staff and doctors at West Coast General Hospital for their care of Dad in his last week and a half. We would especially like to thank Don and Rose and Bob and Bridgette for all their caring and support of Dad. Words cannot express our gratitude for all you have done for Dad and for us, Terry and Mathew. We appreciate it all.
In lieu of flowers, we would ask that donations be made to the Port Alberni Legion in memory of Dad - Barrie Ward.
Much love and gratitude to you all.
Terry and Mathew
There will be a celebration of life at the Port Alberni Legion on Saturday, May 28th, 2022 from 1:00 - 5:00. All are Welcome.
