    • George showed us in the building industry how to care for everyone, work happily and efficiently together, look at situations as they present with an open heart and bring everyone and everything together in harmony. An inspiration to the building construction programme students and teachers at RMIT University.
      A rare gentleman.

  15. Miss you Pa and so happy you can be peaceful in heaven with Nanny and Rose. I am so proud of all the hard work my dad has done looking after Pa the last years. I had a dream I went home and was telling Pa all about my travels in Mexico and Israel before he passed. So glad I had the opportunity to say goodbye to him even if it was in spirit. Sending love to all the family from Mexico x

  27. George was the big brother who ‘looked out’ for his little sister, my mother, Mary.
    He always welcomed me into his family and I cherished listening to his lively and entertaining stories. I only wish I could have recorded some of them.
    He always made me smile and will remain forever in my heart.
    Sending our heartfelt sympathy to all the Dore family with much love from WA,

  28. Our thoughts and love are with the whole Dore family. We have fond memories of George and Margaret’s visit to Warracknabeal for your cousin’s wedding many years ago. George always had plenty to say, loved talking business with John, and made everyone he met feel valued. I have vivid memories of him, as I grew up in Mount Waverley, and as part of Holy Family parish. Once met, never forgotten. Our family will always be closely linked to the Dore family through John and Ji Shan, and through childhood adventures and precious time with Rose.
