George Albert Joseph Axon left us peacefully on Friday, June 14, 2019.

George is survived by his loving family,  wife Pat; daughters Janice (Dale) Smith, Judy (Shell) Smillie; son Joe (Jeanny) Axon; grandchildren Chad, Shane (Laura) , Carly and Andrew Smith, Leanne (Ken) Patzack, Cydney and Devin Axon; five great grandchildren Curtis, Austin and Blake Smith and Lyla and Liam Patzack; sisters Ethel, Wilma (Richard), Violet (Jerry) and their families; Pat’s brothers Dick (Shirley), Vern and their families as well as numerous nieces and nephews on both sides of the family. Predeceased by many family members.

George was born in Regina and moved to Moose Jaw as a young boy and attended school in Moose Jaw. He became a journeyman printer and worked at Western Press and Moose Jaw Times Herald. St. John’s Anglican Church benefited from his many hours of volunteering, which lead to him being appointed the Director of Administration for Diocese of Qu’Appelle travelling coast to coast on many committees. Two highlights of his career were receiving the Anglican Award of Merit presented to him by the Primate Michael Peers and the second was coordinating the Royal Visit to St. John’s Anglican Church by the Queen, Prince Phillip and Prince Edward in 1978. George and Pat together demonstrated the importance of family whether it be hosting family fun at their home or attending family functions. George was always up for a coffee or a drive out in the countryside to see Saskatchewan.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Moose Jaw Humane Society or the Heartland Hospice Foundation in Moose Jaw. A private family service will be held at a later date. In living memory of George, a memorial planting will be made by Jones - Parkview Funeral Services. Please sign the memorial register at website: or  (Obituaries).
