It was sad to hear of the passing of George. I remember him as a good man. May he rest in peace and memories eternal.

From: Alaine Blyth (nee McGunigle)
Relation: He was my 6th grade teacher.

I’m sorry I’m so late sending condolences. Mr. Elashchuk was my grade 6 teacher at Beacon Heights Elementary. He instilled in me my huge love of music and he was one of my favourite teachers. I don’t know how his poor ears handled all of those recorder sessions! I know he’s in Heaven hearing all those souls he tried to teach music to, finally coming together in beauty. Thanks Mr. Elashchuk
