To Tracy, Gina and Charlene and all of the Bandura family; our condolences to you on George’s passing. He was a good friend to Dad (John Leonty) they shared many laughs and good times; Deep Lake ball team and always good natured ribbing between the two of them. George’s humour and kind nature will be missed.
