Mr. George Pozsgai of Rimbey, Alberta passed away at the Rimbey Hospital and Care Centre ~ Area Three on Saturday, December 1, 2012 at the age of 85 years. George was born in Hungary on July 28, 1927. He was only 23 years old when he left Hungary, escaping the dangers of the Iron Curtain to finally arrive safely in Canada. George traveled by rail out west, settling on a farm near Buck Lake with his father. George met and was later united in marriage to Sylvia Micku of Buck Lake. Together they farmed in the Buck Lake area for many years, raising their family of two daughters, Helen and Marilyn. George and Sylvia enjoyed their time on the farm raising cattle, hogs, chickens, and numerous pets. They also worked hard putting in grain and hay crops, and planted an enormous vegetable garden each year. George loved spending time outdoors; mowing the lawn, tending to the garden and flowers, and barbecues or wiener roasts out in the open air. He also enjoyed reading, watching TV, playing cards, dancing, listening to music, and especially enjoyed visiting with family members, friends and neighbours.

“George will be greatly missed by his family and many friends.”

George will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his daughters, Helen Taylor of Ponoka, and her daughter, Wanda Trusett; and Marilyn Dolman of Rimbey, and her three children, Jocelyn Dolman, Brad Dolman (Katrina), and Greg Dolman; as well as his treasured great grandchildren: Janet Trusett and Bryson Dolman. He is also survived by his brother-in-law, Lloyd (Anne) Micku of Buck Lake; two sisters-in-law, Margaret Surgenor of Drayton Valley; and Elaine McLean of Buck Lake; in addition to numerous nieces and nephews. George was predeceased by his parents, Steve and Anna Pozsgai; his beloved wife, Sylvia in 2009; his sons-in-law, Morris Trusett and Neil Dolman; his brother, Steve; his father and mother-in-law; and two sisters-in-law.
