Donald George Streatch - 85, Bible Hill, formerly of Upper Stewiacke, surrounded by loved ones, passed away peacefully on Friday, November 3, 2023. Born in Meaghers Grant, he was a son of the late Charles Stanley and Marjorie Louise (Dickie) Streatch.

Leaving school at a young age, George worked many jobs over his life, from farming, logging, truck driving and milling, to Michelin, auto-body work and heavy truck mechanic. George loved the outdoors, fishing and gardening. He was a good handy man and a great woodworker, and could fix anything with an engine - of which his family and friends routinely took advantage. George was a devoted father, grandfather, great grandfather, and husband of 61 years to Zelda who passed away earlier this year.

He will be dearly missed by his sons, Donald, Halifax; Paul (Sharon), Ottawa; daughters, Sharon, Truro; Rhonda (Mike) Scissons, Valley; grandchildren, Erin, Tyler, Ben, Emma; great grandchildren, Oliver, Emmett, Jackson, Emma; brother, Sandy (Anne); sisters, Kay (Bud), Jeannie (Lewis). Along with his parents, he was predeceased by his wife, Zelda (McCoul); son, Douglas; brothers, Ray, Jack, Howard.

George’s family will receive friends from 6-8 p.m., Tuesday, November 7, 2023, at Upper Stewiacke United Church Hall, 5511 Highway 289, Upper Stewiacke. (Please wear a mask, if able.) All are welcome to attend a graveside interment service for George and Zelda that will be held 11 a.m., Wednesday, November 8, 2023, at Riverside Cemetery, Southside Road, Upper Stewiacke. In lieu of flowers, donations in George’s memory to Upper Stewiacke Cemetery Corporation, Canadian Cancer Society or a charity of choice are welcomed.
