George MacDonald Stephen, age 91, of Stratford and formerly of Toronto, passed away at Stratford General Hospital on Sunday, December 6, 2020 after complications of COVID-19. Born in Montreal, son of the late Gordon and Margaret Stephen. Predeceased by his loving wife Prue (Annesley) Stephen (Nov 1997). Survived by his daughter Deb Northmore (Don Berry) and his son Peter Stephen (Annette Smith). Devoted grandfather to Caleb, Brianna and Simon Northmore. If there were one word that would describe George’s standard of conduct for his entire life, perhaps it would be thoughtfulness. His quiet attentiveness was experienced by his family and their friends, the many students he tutored and the residents and staff at Cedarcroft Place. He will be missed at the library and by the servers at the many restaurants that he frequented around Stratford. Besides his wife, George was predeceased by a son Geoff Stephen (Dec 1979). In keeping with George’s wishes cremation will take place, with interment in Mount Pleasant Cemetery (Toronto). A celebration of George’s life will be held at a later date. As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to the Stratford Public Library through the W. G. Young Funeral Home, 430 Huron Street, Stratford, ON. 519.271.7411. www.wgyoungfuneralhome.com
