HOLLAND, George Hickson
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of George Hickson Holland; wonderful and loving husband, father, grandfather and friend. He leaves behind many fond memories for his wife of 62 years, Nancy (Sheppard) and for his sons David (Judy), and Bob (Nancy). He was tremendous mentor and very dear to his grandchildren Kate, Tracy (Brandon), Sara, James and Jennifer. He was always there for his family to share in the joy and support in tougher times. He will be missed beyond words. A graduate of both McGill and Harvard Universities, George was a very successful businessman, having been Chairman and President of Robert Mitchell Limited for many decades. His involvement in the community and provincial politics left him with many life- long friends and kept him active. George’s kindness touched many people over his 86 years. We know that the sadness of his loss eventually will be replaced by the memory of his life. The family will hold a private service in his memory. The family would like to express its gratitude to the doctors, nurses and staff of the Jewish General Hospital for their kindness and compassion. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Montreal West Children’s Library, 314 Northview Street, Montreal West, QC, H4X 1E2 would be greatly appreciated as a library for children meant a great deal to his wife and him.
