    • PASSMORE ~ George Bernard Passmore (Bernie) was born on March 9, 1945 in Paradise Hill, SK and passed away at the age of 68 on July 20, 2013 at the University of Alberta Hospital in Edmonton, AB. Bernie grew up on the family farm near Hillmond until he moved to Lloydminster in 1963. He married Karen Laverty in 1967 and had two children Dana and Darlis. Bernie established a solid career with City Side Realty in Lloydminster which lasted 27 years. After retiring from real estate, Bernie and Karen began a new business venture as dollar store owners which took them to St. Albert and Lac La Biche. They retired back to Lloydminster in 2010. Bernie was actively involved in his community, sitting on several boards and committees. His greatest joy was spending time with his family. Whether playing board games with his granddaughters, or boating and quading at Peck Lake, Bernie was happiest when he was surrounded by those he loved. Bernie is survived by his wife of 46 years, Karen of Lloydminster, son Dana (Lori) Passmore of Sherwood Park, daughter Darlis (Avery) Letwinetz of Lloydminster and the apples of his eye, his four granddaughters; Kayla Passmore, Emma and Georgia Letwinetz and Sarah Taylor. He is also survived by his siblings Norm (Shirley) Passmore of Hillmond, Wayne (Sylvia) Passmore of Lloydminster, Noreen Schesnuk (Ron Fischer) of Lloydminster, Marion (Tom) Hougham of Frenchman Butte; his mother-in-law Doris Laverty (Morris Johnstone); and several nieces and nephews. Bernie is predeceased by his parents Bob & Joan Passmore; his granddaughter Bailey Passmore; and father-in-law Wes Laverty. The funeral service was held on July 25, 2013 at the Lloydminster Gospel Fellowship with Pastor Darleene Skinner and Evengelist Wayne Skinner officiating. The eulogy was delivered by his sisters Noreen Schesnuk and Marion Hougham. The honorary pallbearers were Gary Green and John Green. The active pallbearers were his brothers and nephews, Norm Passmore, Wayne Passmore, Brad Passmore, Brandon Schesnuk, Justin Hougham and Scott Hougham. Graveside service was held at the Lloydminster City Cemetery with Elder Morris Johnstone officiating. Card of Thanks We would like to express heartfelt gratitude to our family and friends who have so generously supported us during this difficult time. We would also like to thank everyone who participated in the funeral service. Bernie would have been extremely touched. Karen Dana and Lori Darlis and Avery Kayla, Emma, Georgia and Sarah 12531559
