BILLARD, George
Page 4
George Billard remembered for his commitment to community by Frank Gale, Stephenville (accompanied by a photo of Mr. Billard)

The late George Billard is being remembered as a strong community volunteer by several community leaders here. Mr. Billard passed away at the Health Science Centre in St. John's on Jan. 2 at the age of 71. Mayor Cecil Stein said Mr. Billard was always interested in the community and was an excellent volunteer. He said he was a hard worker and pretty well always the first to take on tasks when they came up at the Stephenville council table. Mr. Billard served as deputy mayor and finance chairman under Mayor Stein, who said he served very well during those years. While in Stephenville, Mr. Billard was a representative for Investors Group and during his second time around he and his wife Myra ran Billard's Bed and Breakfast on New Mexico Drive. Many visitors will attest that his interest in the history of the province and in Stephenville made their stay a pleasant one. Mr. Billard's involvement in the community included being a member of the Shriners, an executive member of the Bay St. George Chamber of Commerce, and a member of a number of Lions Clubs across the province and the distinction of being the first governor of District 41-S1. He was twice a member of the Stephenville and St. John's Lions Clubs, the Norris Point Lions Club, the Port aux Basques Lions Club and the Corner Brook Lions Club. Harold Wells, who is a past district governor of 41-S1 and a Lions past council chairman, said Mr. Billard was a good Lion and a person that was in more of their clubs than any other Lion. He said Mr. Billard was a very good organizer and when he took on a project you knew that it was going to be well organized. Mayor Stein said when Mr. Billard left town for St. John's a number of years ago, it was a loss to the community of Stephenville and now his passing is certainly a big loss to his family and many friends.
