It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Papa, Sip Kow (George) on April 15, 2024 at the age of 87.  He passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loving family at Lions Gate Hospital.  Thank you to the caring doctors, nurses and staff at LGH Palliative Care who brought much comfort to his final days.

George was a very proud and happy family man. George leaves behind his beloved family: the love of his life Man Chu (Jane), wife of 53 years, his children: Marie-Lise (Jean-François), Clifford (Dawn), Cheryl (Hai), Anthony (Hilda), and Dannie (Georges), his grandchildren: Alice, Alexis, Ian, Aidan, James, Sherry-Lynn(George), and Jordan(Kelly) – and the extended family.  Predeceased by parents Po Yuen (Paul) Lam and Mee Min Chung.

George was born in Port Louis, Mauritius.  He was the seventh of ten children.  In the 70s, George married his love and best friend, Jane.  A few years later, they immigrated to Canada, where they eventually settled in the District of North Vancouver. They opened a marine business.   George had a great entrepreneurial spirit and, along with Jane, established a flourishing company.

A Celebration of Life will be held at West Vancouver Baptist Church, 450 Mathers Avenue, West Vancouver, on Saturday, April 27, 2024.  Funeral (Wake) Viewing: Noon to 1:00 PM.  Funeral Service: 1:00-2:00 PM.  A reception to immediately follow in the church.

The family wishes to thank all for their support and love at this sad time.    In lieu of flowers, please make a tribute donation to Lions Gate Hospital Foundation – Hospice & Palliative Care – in loving memory of George.

George was loved by many and will be dearly missed and never forgotten.   He leaves behind a legacy of love and cherished memories for all who knew and loved him
