In Memoriam: George Kojro

Mar 17, 2017

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of George Kojro.  He passed away peacefully on Thursday March 9, 2017 after a very brief battle with cancer.  George built his family cottage on the North Shore of Skootamatta Lake in 1982.  He was very dedicated to finishing off building the interior of the cottage on his own but managed to spend a great deal of time enjoying the property and friends he made too.  He and his wife Marlene spent every weekend of every season enjoying Skootamatta Lake.  They loved the beach and sailing in Georges boat in the summertime.  They won the sailing regatta a number of times in the eighties and nineties.  George's name was on the trophy so many times that Ron Nowell handed the trophy back to him a few years ago for keeps.  It will reside at the Kojro/Vetere cottage for good.   George and Marlene loved Ski-Dooing and cross country skiing in the winter as well.  The entire family spent many years enjoying the cottage.  As he got older the cottage became too difficult to manage so he gave it to his children Antony, Julie, and Paula in 2007.  He continued to enjoy visiting each summer when his daughter Paula and husband Dominic took over ownership.  He will be missed by all who knew him.
