George William Alton Wall passed away suddenly in his home on March 10, 2012 at the age of 63 years. He was born in Smithers on July 20, 1948 to parents Al and Pearl Wall (nee Hann). Growing up he played baseball and later in life enjoyed curling, golfing and skiing. He took over his father’s furniture business and retired a successful businessman. He was an avid outdoorsman and seasoned fisherman. The one flaw he had was being a Leaf’s fan.
He will be sadly missed and remembered by his sons Brendon (Rachael) and Garrett; grandson Ralph; mother Pearl; sisters Joan, Leona, Betty and Barbara and brother Jerry. George was predeceased by his father Al and sister Colleen.
A Celebration of Life for George will be held on Friday, March 23, 2012 at 2:00 pm in the Smithers Curling Rink. In lieu of flowers donations would be appreciated to the Bulkley Valley Historical and Museum Society and can be sent to PO Box 2615, Smithers, BC V0J 2N0.
