Peacefully with family by his side George passed away in Winnipeg, MB. at the Riverview Health Center on Wednesday January 20, 2021 at the age of 64 years.
George was predeceased by his sister Dorothy Mae Painchaud (Nee Demenuk) and his parents Fred and Martha Demenuk; his sister-in-law Betty Demenuk; his nephews Glenn and Kevin.
George is survived by his wife Rayaline Demenuk (Nee Scott) of 37 years; his three (3) daughters Jolene (Jeff), Keri and Sheryl (Kyle); siblings Ted and Beverley (Lloyd); Two (2) grandchildren; nieces and nephews Wendy, Keith (Darren), Karen (Scott) and great-niece Brittany; great-nephews Dylan and Ryan. Also lovingly remembered by Alastair and Muriel Scott and Family.
George worked many years in the contracting and construction industry when the high powers almost took him from us when he was 52 years when he suffered a massive heart attack and endured a brian injury. George had to learn to talk, walk and eat again and memory loss would become a daily struggle. With Rayaline by his side as his full-time caregiver George was able to live the best days doing things he enjoyed. His favourites were having coffee with friends and family; being an active member at the YMCA day program and also leading the annual MBIA Charity walk.
George loved the company of others even up to his last breath; he would make everyone smile from jokes or “did you knows”, to personal notes he would write on whatever he could find. George took much pride being a family man and provider while still doing great craftsmanship as a private contractor for work he loved.
George has touched a lot of people’s lives with his golden heart and big shoulders. George's smiling eyes, contagious laughter, kindness and big personality will always be remembered and tattooed on our hearts for days to come. He was loved by so many people; and now the heavens will shine brighter with one more superstar.
“George you are the best there was, the best there is and the best there ever will be. With all our love. Till we meet again”.
