January 17, 1941 – March 10, 2010
Eric Gale, husband of Marie (nee Cybulski) Gale, passed away peacefully on Wednesday March 10, 2010, even though he told his grandchildren that he would live to be 192. Maybe he was…who knows?
He has left behind a loving family including his children, Grant Gale, Joyce (Adrian) Martinez, Stuart (Erin) Gale and Heather (Gordon) McIntosh. His grandchildren, Marilyn, Margaret, Krystina, Victoria, Spencer, Graeme, Catherine, Jocelyn, Mikayla, McKenna and Madelyn will miss him, but will keep Chico tuned for when they see him again. He is also survived by his brother, Mel (Roxanne) Gale, and many friends.
Eric gave generously of his time to various organizations, including the Knights of Columbus, Kinsmen, and the Lions. He was a successful entrepreneur, leading several organizations as a hospital administrator, the President of Ergon Management, S.A. Power Corporation, and Universal Power Corporation, which took him to China and Hong Kong. He was also the International Chair for DECUS.
