It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of George Victor Jean, 80, of Addington Forks, on December 9, 2019, in St. Martha’s Regional Hospital, with his family by his side.
He was born in Rockdale, Cape Breton, on December 26, 1938, to the late Anthony and Victoria (Pottie) Jean.
George started his career as an auto body mechanic with Antigonish Motors and later Ron MacGillivray Chev Olds where, in total, he worked for nearly 50 years and made many lifelong friends. He was known for being a dedicated and hard worker who always took great pride in all that he did.
