George Richard Bishop
George Richard Bishop, 76, of Forest Dale Home and formerly of Albert Mines passed away peacefully on February 28th, 2022 at the home with his boys by his side.
George was born in Moncton on March 13, 1945 the son of the late Calvin L. and Gladys (Steeves) Bishop.
George was a hard worker having worked at T. Eaton Co., MacArthur's Nursery, the Gypsum Mill, Lockhart's Lumber, last working at T.P. Downey & Sons in the lumber mill until his retirement. He made many good friends along the way and they all shared lots of laughs over the years. He attended the Seventh Day Adventist Church when he was able. George had a special place in his heart for animals and especially his dogs, Trooper and Sue, they were there for him and the unconditional love that they provided was a great comfort when he needed it. His last dog, Jake, is still around and being cared for by George's sister, Ruth. You never saw the car going without Jake sitting in the front seat. He was truly grateful for the fact she took Jake in when he could no longer look after him.
George was a very devoted and caring dad and would do anything for his boys. He taught them not to overthink things, that nothing will ever be perfect, so just keep moving and do your best. His family was his pride and joy and he always enjoyed talking about them and was very proud of all their accomplishments. "A Father's love is forever imprinted on his child's heart." We love you dad, until we meet again.
He will be deeply missed by his sons, Allan (Cheryl) of Lower Coverdale, Gary (Linda) of Pine Glen and Darrell (Kim) of Ponoka, AB; his treasured grandchildren, Nicholas (Stephanie), Tyler (Tabatha), Cody, Christopher (Nola), and Cole;by his four precious great grandchildren, Benjamin, Dakota, Mikayla and Grayson; his sisters, Elizabeth "Betty" Dukeshire of Brantford, ON and Ruth Bishop of Hillsborough; brothers, Winston Bishop (Eleanor) of Moncton, and Lyall (Cynthia) of Oshawa, ON.
