Obituary of George Finlay

Finlay, George Stephen


It is with great sadness that the family of George Stephen Finlay announces his peaceful passing at Bayshore Transitional Care on Wednesday, March 15, 2023, in his 75th year.

Steve will be greatly missed by his wife, Sally; sons Daniel (Katie) of Conshohocken, PA; Jeremy of Vancouver, BC; daughter Joanna (Rae) of London, UK; and his precious grandchildren, Aidan and Bryn. He will be missed by his sisters Angie (Robert) and Robin (Mike) of Napanee and his many nephews and nieces. Steve was the son of Gwen and Lloyd Finlay who predeceased him.

Steve graduated from the University of Windsor in 1972. He worked in finance banking for most of his career, taking him to Ottawa, Montreal, New York City, Salt Lake City, and Vancouver.

He retired to his hometown of Napanee/Kingston in 2010 due to health issues. Steve was an avid skier and sailor and enjoyed many summers sailing on the Bay of Quinte and the Long Island Sound, while enjoying winters skiing in Park City, Utah and British Columbia.

His children, despite the distance, all came to say their goodbyes in his last few months of life. In keeping with Steve’s wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be a celebration of life at a later date.

The family would like to thank KGH for their compassionate care of Steve as well as the Bayshore Transitional Care Unit. An additional thank you to the Windsor Retirement Community where he spent his last few years.

Any donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada and the Canadian Cancer Society.
