George Blackstock

Board Member at Large, Luke 15 House

Luke 15 Volunteer

My wife Denise and I were both raised in North Vancouver.  We have been married for 53 years. We met in High School and we have 3 boys and 7 grandchildren.  I had a long career, of 35 years, with Canada Safeway Ltd in management at their head office in Vancouver.

We have been volunteering at Luke 15 for approximately 3 years.  I teach carving and my wife Denise helps cook a meal for the men every other Wednesday.  We were both drawn to Luke 15 after hearing a talk at our church by Nigel.We were also drawn to the L15 organization because we almost lost one of our sons to drugs and alcohol many years ago.
