Good bye George.  May all the rows be Farmall straight.

George had a fantastic amount of knowledge of IH, its management and its downfall and the possibilities of what could have been done to save it. I always really enjoyed his posts on the subject. He will be missed here, RIP George 2.

George 2 passed May 18th from complications fighting a long battle with cancer. He earlier had posted on here a summary of how the disease was affecting him. He remained ever optimistic that he would be victorious. The disease proved to be too much evan for his Magnums to pull up the grade. George and i attended the same school at Lachute, Quebec. We were raised on dairy farms about 10 miles apart. Upon graduation from school, he attended McGill university (Montreal, Quebec) and left with a degree in mechcanical engineering , eventually securing a life long  carrer with Ontario Hydrro electric production. All the while he farmed in Bruce county exclusively with IH and then Case IH. arrangements entrusted to Mackenzie and Mccreath Funeral home, Ripley, Ontario. Funeral is Thursday May 23 at 1 pm. 

I previously posted as Quebec Red on the old forum.  George 2 will be missed by all for his vast and detailed knowledge not only about IH, but many varied subjects. He leaves his wife of 31 years along with 2 children.May the rows always be Farmall straight, , and the shutters open fully at WOT, and watch that  EGT. Thank you George, it was a wonderful ride we had all those years together.

Sympathy to the Thorburn Family, George will be sadly missed on Red Power Forum, Always enjoyed a visit with George at our tractor days, was always up on  IH and Case IH, very knowlegable on anything in life, spent many hours with him during our many years of selling memorabilia for Chapter 20. Sad how such a sickness can eat up a strong healthy man as he was the last time we met,

Oh no, this is terrible news. George was always interesting to read...and he knew what he was talking about, no matter what the subject was. He truly was a very valuable asset to this forum.

RIP George, you were one of the good guys.
