"DOB" 2003 Obituary


DOBIE o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2003-12-29 published
MYLES, George Alexander
George was born on October 21, 1915 at the Woman's Hospital in Toronto, but life took him to many continents and through many adventures before its circle ended at the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre on December 23, 2003 in the presence of his wife, Elizabeth (Bette). Despite his advancing age and declining health, George died suddenly, maintaining his wit, charm and penchant for crosswords until his last days. Growing up on the ''Danforth'', at the age of 23, he embarked on a journey to Southern Rhodesia in 1938, where he later joined the Royal Air Force and reported to #49 Squadron at Scampton, Lincolnshire, on January 15, 1941. Returning to Africa after the war, he stayed until 1948, then returned to Canada. George retired in 1980 after 30 years working for the Department of Veteran's Affairs. He leaves two sons, John, of Harrison Springs, British Columbia and George (Leslie) of Carleton Place, Ontario; grandchildren Angus, Garth, and Lauren sisters Mary DOBIE (nephew Alan) and Audrey TAILOR/TAYLOR (niece Barbara) sisters-in-law Dorothy PIKE (Boston) and Shirley WILLISTON (Dartmouth, Nova Scotia). George's legacy to his family is a 340 page autobiography that uniquely traces the footsteps of a Canadian born during the First World War, his youth through the Depression, and his service years during World War 2. Ever one for sayings and adages, he believed strongly in the special mystery of the Universe. His autobiography concludes with the following prose dedicated to his grandchildren and their children: ''I had a happy childhood. My parents were responsible people. My family believed in God. I appreciated the Wonders of Nature.'' The family received Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A. W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), from 7-9 p.m. Sunday, December 28th. Service in the Chapel Monday, December 29th at 3 p.m. Interment Mount Pleasant Cemetery.
