Obituary for George "Buster" Jackson

George "Buster"  Jackson
(Retired Owner of George Jackson Motors)

Peacefully in his 91st year with his family by his side in Renfrew Victoria Hospital.
George grew up on a farm in Stafford Township, the eldest son of Gordon Jackson and Evelyn (Nee Leech). After working as an electrician for Ontario Hydro in various locations, George and his family moved back to the Ottawa Valley. He then made a career change and started his own business, George Jackson Motors which became a successful Toyota dealership. He retired from the business in 1995.
Aviation was George’s lifelong passion. He was 33 when he got his pilot’s licence at the Toronto Island Airport. When he moved back to the Valley he joined with other pilots to form the Champlain Flying Club, a vibrant organization that continues to this day.
He is survived by his wife Dorothy (nee Stuart) of 65 years, his daughter Joanne (Lyle Whately), his sister Shirley Wilcox, brother-in-law Bob (Kay) Stuart and sister-in-law Waveney (Keith Stewart) of Ingleside. George is predeceased by his brother Colin, sister Lorna (late Ken Barr), also brothers-in-law Bob Buske and Donald Wilcox.
Friends and family will greatly miss George‘s sense of humour, his work ethic and his positive outlook on life. He always believed there was a way for people to reach a mutual understanding.
He was a close friend with his double first cousins, Ward and Bert Jackson; as fate would have it, the three cousins died within days of each other.

The family expresses gratitude to Dr. Bodig and Dr. Pinard as well as the caring staff of the 2nd and 3rd floor of Renfrew Victoria Hospital.

Friends may call at the Zohr Family Funeral Home, Renfrew (formerly Anderson Funeral Home), 22 Raglan Street South for memorial visitation on Saturday, February 24, 2018 from 9 – 10:30 am. A memorial service will be held at St Paul’s Anglican Church, Renfrew, at 11am.

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth …
Put out my hand and touched the face of God.
