408 “Goose Squadron”Squadron Regrets to Announce the Passing of
McKILLOP, George Robert – 06 Dec 1922, Winnipeg – 24 Apr 2016, New Westminster
The family of George McKillop sadly announces his passing on Sunday, April 24, at the age of ninety-three. George was a lifelong learner and in his early 80’s became a proficient computer user. He applied these skills during his research to update the Squadron casualty list for World War II. Using the Squadron history book and his own research which he conducted both in Vancouver and at the National Library and Archives of Canada in Ottawa, he created a database of the losses. George was very active on the 408 Squadron Association website answering many, many enquiries regarding air crew losses. These enquiries often led to continuing correspondence via email. He continued to be active on the website until February of this year.
