In Loving Memory Of
George Demetre
March 28, 2015

Dieppe, NB – The family of George Demetre mourns his sudden death on Saturday, March 28th, 2015 at the age 69. Born in New Glasgow, NS to Greek immigrant parents, the late Samuel P. and the late Mary (Chrisomalis) Demetre, he moved with his family to Montreal and grew up there.

George came to New Brunswick to study at UNB, graduated with an engineering degree, and spent his life here. George worked for NB Tel/Alliant for over thirty years, and was an avid golfer, bridge player and hockey dad. He was a computer geek before any of us knew what computers were. Warm-hearted and generous, George had high standards, and he applied them equally to everyone, including himself. He always had a kind streak and his sense of compassion emerged most in his later years: George seemed happiest helping neighbors file their taxes or as a volunteer driver for late night revelers on New Year’s. A true New Brunswicker, he didn’t judge or call attention to himself and he died the same way, quietly in his sleep.

George is survived by his son Gregory (Krista) of Fredericton, sisters Beatrice (Jerry) Katsouris and Christine, both of Halifax, brother Theo of Gatineau, QC, nieces and nephews, as well as his former wife, Stella of Shediac, with whom he retained a deep connection. He lost two siblings in recent years, Nina (Andreas) Lambou of Athens, Greece and Peter of New Glasgow.

Visitation will be held at Passage Funeral Co-operative in Shediac Bridge on Wednesday, April 1st, 2015 from 2:00 to 4:00pm and from 7:00 to 9:00pm and on Thursday, April 2nd, 2015 from 10:00 till the time of the funeral. Funeral service will be held a Passage Funeral Co-operative Chapel on Thursday, April 2nd, 2015 at 11:00am

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Diabetes Association or to a charity of the donor’s choice would be appreciated by the family.
