George Yonathan Sarkis

Peacefully into the loving arms of Jesus on March 8, 2019, at the age of 82. Beloved husband of Mirna (nee Akkawi) for 50 years. Much loved father of Nancy Younathan and husband Gus Najem, Rony Sarkis and Tony Sarkis. Cherished grandfather of Roman Sarkis. Dearest brother of John, and predeceased by Georgette and Josephine. Dear brother-in-law of Hani Akkawi and wife Nadia, Mai Layous and husband Salim Layous. George will be lovingly remembered by his extended family.

George was a distinguished Professor of Organic Chemistry at several universities throughout his career. Over the course of fifty plus years, George touched the lives of many students, their families and colleagues with a compassionate spirit, consistent dedication and unwavering encouragement. The influence that George had over all of those he met left a remarkable impact in their lives. George was a selfless man, whose convictions led him to always stand up for the right thing, regardless of the sacrifice. Not only a Scientist, but also an Evangelical Christian sharing the Gospel, George spent much of his retirement years searching for God, learning about His promises and preparing for eternal life with Jesus Christ. Even as he prepared for his home going, his calm demeanour and resolute assurance ministered to those who cared for him at the hospital. George’s certainty about his destiny in eternity was confirmed to him twice through a vision of the welcoming arms of Lord Jesus. This was comforting and assuring of the Lord’s promises in His Word. George’s last few words to his family were to “love one another and be compassionate to everyone”.

If you so desire, donations to Alkarma TV Christian Ministries or Ontario Heart & Stroke Foundation would be appreciated by the family.
