With his family by his side George Eisenschink passed away in his 87th year on June 16, 2021. George was born in Mitterfecking, Germany and grew up in the midst of WWII. At the age of 18 and speaking no English, George immigrated to Canada for a better life. He eventually settled in Exeter, Ontario where he started his own logging business, Eisenschink Logging Company, and met the love of his life, Barbara. After the birth of their 4 children, George and Barb bought farmland and built the “ponderosa” to raise their children, some crops and a collection of farm animals. George continued to log well into his 70s and following her retirement, Barb worked by his side. Alzheimers eventually took the man we all knew and loved. George is predeceased by his parents, 7 siblings and parents-in-law. He leaves behind his wife (of 60 years) Barb; children Heidi Soudant (Dennis Regnier), Diane Maguire (Shane), Dennis, Linda Moody (Jeff); grandchildren Ashley Soudant (Jeff Valley), Jennifer Soudant (Jordan Earhart), Ryan Maguire (Asher), Colin Maguire and Kole Eisenschink; four-legged companions Max and Bear; brother-in-laws and their wives (Moore family) and many nieces and nephews. Special thanks to the staff at Huronview for the special care they gave George in the last few months of his life.
