Tomik, George

George Tomik, beloved husband of Georgia Tomik, passed away suddenly but peacefully, after a courageous battle with cancer, at the Pincher Creek Hospital on April 30, 2002, at the age of 73 years.
George was born in the Amiens District, near Lethbridge, on Feb. 12, 1929, the youngest child of William and Mary Tomik.
George attended school in Fort Macleod and started trucking at an early age. He worked in the construction industry and moved to Pincher Creek in 1958, where he operated his own crane and excavating business until retirement.
George was an active supporter of the community, was a member of the Pincher Creek Lions Club for 40 years and a tireless seller of raffle tickets. He promoted the construction of the Pincher Creek Community Hall and he served on the hall board for 10 years. George may be best known for the barbecue suppers he catered throughout the years.
George was well known in the community and he will be missed by many who knew him.
