He worked for 37 years at Fiberglass Canada as a maintenance mechanic. In their retirement years, they travelled the world and he still talked of the camels of Egypt. He was a longtime friend of Bill W. Cremation has taken place and a celebration of Gunnar’s life will be held at the D. J. ROBB FUNERAL HOME AND CREMATION CENTRE (102 N.
