GUSTAVSON – Hilding Allan (Gus)

December 20, 1928 – December 29, 2010

Hilding Allan (Gus) Gustavson passed away suddenly but very peacefully on December 29, 2010. Predeceased by the love of his life, Joy and their dog Jazz, he is lovingly remembered by sons, Greg (Lana) and Bob (Donna); and grandkids, Leslie and Kyle; brother Bob (Velma) and sister Sheila (Stan) Dell.

Gus was very partial to ice cream, coffee, peanuts and nanaimo bars. There was a time when he also enjoyed White Owl cigars and rye & water. He loved dogs, getting up early and wearing shorts.

A Celebration of Gus’ Life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Fish Creek Chapel (14441 Bannister Road S.E.) on Saturday, January 8, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. Forward condolences through Flowers are respectfully declined but donations to The Mustard Seed, CNIB, Cancer Society, SPCA or Alzheimer’s Society would please Gus greatly.

In living memory of Gus Gustavson, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek Chapel, 14441 BANNISTER ROAD S.E. Telephone: (403) 256-9575.

    Our deepest sympathy and prayers are with you at this time.
    I had the pleasure of working with Gus many years ago as members of the Shell Canada Agrochemical division. We worked together from 1977-84. I had the great opportunity of being reacquainted with Gus just within the last few years as he attended the Shell Chemicals retirees luncheons. It was an absolute pleasure to meet up with him once again and reminisce.
    Yours truly,

    Our condolences,
    Pam & Derric Ostapyk

    Gus and Joy were wonderful neighbours, for many years to my parents, Don and Grace Ross. I am Don and Grace’s daughter, Wendy, who also lives nearby, and often visited with Gus, Joy and Jazz when they were out for walks. I
    miss them all!

    My parents (who now live in Wentworth Manor) and I all send our deepest condolences to the family, who may remember us.

    Thinking of you all,

    Wendy Dunsmore
