George was born and raised in Amykle Greece the son of Ilias and Katerini Bourolias and was a true Spartan. In 1957 he immigrated to Canada and began his cross-country journey working and exploring throughout the country.
George was a lover of books, fine wine, scotch, arguing politics and religion. He was a believer in justice and equality and would state that unfairness in the world was “Jambalaya” a fancy word for BS! He loved to socialize with friends and family and prepare beautiful meals in his home. His favourite past-time was playing cards with his family and friends, and he loved to share stories of history which he was very knowledgeable of. He was fond of nature and animals and loved to feed the birds and the squirrels on his walks through the park.
