George Thole Obituary

George Thole

George Thole was tragically taken from this world to be with his savior on September 8, 2020. Born on April 5, 1969 in Harare Zimbabwe, George was the 2nd oldest of 6 children. Following his primary education, George pursued his studies and obtained a Certificate in Animal Husbandry at the Central African Correspondence College in 1998. This led him to many job opportunities in Zimbabwe and Malawi. Being a family man with the dream of providing a better life for his loved ones, George made the ultimate sacrifice. Always exploring his options, he took a position as a Cow Boss with Lacasse Farms Ltd. in Kincaid Saskatchewan CANADA in August of 2016. Following his arrival in Canada, George quickly applied himself to adapting to his new environment and focused on gaining more knowledge and furthering his education in his field. Known as ‘Cowboy’ to all, he fully engaged in his work. This was truly his domain. An analytical thinker and strong observer, he could quickly assess issues within the herd. He was organized, disciplined with his record keeping and maintained strong communication at all times. He was a valued team player. A man of many strengths and talents, he was above all else a man of God. He was deeply rooted in his faith and lived it accordingly. Quiet by nature; respectful to all, ‘Cowboy’ was a man of peace. George leaves to mourn, his loving family; his wife Martha, his children, his mother Marita Vira all in Zimbabwe along with many relatives and friends across the world. He will always be remembered as a helpful, hardworking, loving and proud man. Cowboy George left a mark on all those he met and worked with. He will be truly missed and remembered as a very kind, compassionate and faithful man. George’s last voyage will take him back to his beloved homeland where he will be laid to rest. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, a small private prayer service will take place on at Piché-Hawkins-Grondin Funeral Chapel in Gravelbourg SK on Thursday, September 17, 2020. For those who wish to follow, the service will be available for online viewing at: Piche Hawkins Grondin Funeral Chapels Facebook page. As George was committed to ensuring that his children in Zimbabwe receive a proper education a Trust Fund has been established in his honor. Donations in memory of Cowboy can be made to the George Thole Education Fund.
