Georges Joseph Langlois

We are sad to announce the passing of Georges Langlois. Georges was born in Port-Daniel, Quebec on April 13th, 1935. He had a bit of a wild and carefree spirit and left home at age 18 from his small town roots to see more of this country. He traveled to part of the States in Louisiana to experience his “Cajun” roots and across Canada, living in many places in BC. He first settled in Abbotsford where he met his wife, played on a formal softball team and became the coach of the team the following year. He traveled a lot for his work and eventually settled in Nelson in 1975, the most beautiful place he said he had ever seen. Georges continued to work hard all of his life in his paving and sealcoating business. He knew and talked with many people in this community and often embarrassed his daughters as teenagers with his constant waving out the car window. He enjoyed the simple things in life such as music, children, animals, hockey games, sunshine, laughter and a good cup of coffee. He was a kind spirit who was always willing to help or give to others.
Georges is survived by his wife Elaine, daughters Zoe (Lloyd) and Eva Hernandez (Richard), grandsons Devan, Steven, Ryan and Nathan, nieces, nephews and other family members in Quebec. Thank you to Dr. Bridger and Linda for his care in Nelson, Dr. Soetaert and staff in Fernie and thank you to the amazing staff of Rocky Mountain Village in Fernie, who became part of our extended family when we could no longer care for him.

A gathering for everyone who knew Georges is being held at the Granite Pointe Golf Course Clubhouse in Nelson, Friday November 18th from 2-4pm.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to your organization of choice or provide a kindness to someone.

“The end becomes the beginning,
Lifting high to capture the soul.
Beams of warm sunlight linger,
To shine upon everlasting”
Always deeply loving and living you Hun, Dad, Grandpa~
