The community of Williams Lake has lost a very dear friend in George Suttis, aka. Yuletide Dinner long-standing Santa.
George was Santa for the Yuletide Dinner for 11 years until a few years ago when he handed his gifts to a neighbouring Santa in training that lived down the lane.
George loved seeing the children’s faces light up and we have all been privileged to have George be a part of our special community evening and our lives. George with all his ho, ho, hoing and handing out of beautiful homemade stockings filled with oranges, candy canes and gifts always made the Yuletide Dinner complete.
George, our friend, you will be sorely missed. You were a kind, giving man, who touched the heart of so many in our community, especially at Christmas.
We will say our goodbyes with love and wonderful memories.
Some of Santa George’s biggest fans, Vanessa Riplinger, the staff at the Child Development Centre and the hundreds of children he gave gifts out to at Christmas
