Tuesday, August 20, 2019My condolences to the George O’Brien family. I had the privilege and pleasure to work on the tissue mill project in the late 1980’s and I learned a lot from George. He earned my respect and admiration by demonstrating that hard work, respect and appreciation of everyone on the team makes a successful project. I was part of the engineering consultant team that supported George and his Irving team and I often share the fond project memories with my younger colleagues. He always gave 100% or more and it was not possible to do anything less in return.

Tuesday, August 13, 2019I was sad to hear the news of George O’Brien’s passing. George was one of my father’s best friends. I had some good conversations with George about his good times with my father. He told me about many of their extraordinary times growing up in Saint John. My father held George in high regard as an extraordinary lifelong friend and the best example of a gentleman! It is easy to look up to George as a role model of his generation.

Tuesday, August 13, 2019Dear Eleanor, David, Susan, Christine and all family I loved George O’Brien as did our whole Brown clan. George was a wonderful friend to my parents Kay and Bernie Brown. They adored his friendship and we even as kids.....then young adults/adults realized what a great gentleman George was. Courteous, smart, articulate, sweet mannered George made a beautiful impression on me personally. He was so good to my Dad Bernie, I will never forget how happy he made dad, and just about everyone in the room.....and sometimes it was a big room. That was George, he impressed everyone! I’m so glad George found Eleanor when he did! Lucky man! And what a happy man. Thank you Eleanor! God Bless You All. We’re all very sad. I unfortunately will be in another province and will miss the funeral. I’m very disappointed as I would like to have seen everyone. Praying for you all Diane Brown Halifax
