March 30, 1932 – Edmonton, AB
January 3, 2014 – Calgary, AB
With heartfelt sadness Byron (Dianna) and Alison (Paul) announce the passing of our Dad at his residence in Calgary on January 3rd , 2014. Gail had a zest and strong will to enjoy life at all stages throughout life. From skiing in the Bugaboos (yeah he was pretty good), being on the water at Windermere, to marshalling on the golf course in retirement, Dad loved being outside. As a P. Eng in petroleum with an MBA, Gail worked mostly in Canada but also enjoyed being involved with developing oil services in other countries. Gail also had great respect for our Canadian Military. He was deeply involved with history research and volunteering at the Military Museum for a number of years. Throughout life Gail enjoyed hobbies that ranged from building RC airplanes and boats to his love of flying on his computer. We would like to thank the Staff at The Beverly for their compassion and caring of our Dad over the past two years. Love Ya Dad.
