With loving memories, Glenda, Christina, and Warren announce the passing of Gustav (Gus) Einar Kraft on Sunday, September 2, 2007 at the age of 60 years.
Gus was born in Wilson Creek, BC where he spent his youth. Gus and his family later moved to Alberta where he graduated from NAIT with a diploma in Business Administration. It was in Edmonton that he met the love of his life and they married in the spring of 1970. Besides spending time with his family, Gus loved to fish and always looked forward to hitting the open road on his cherished motorbike, letting the highway take him where it may.
Gus’ legacy of life will be forever celebrated by his wife of thirty-seven years, Glenda; his two children, Christina (Stephen) Kraft-Andersen, and Warren; and his two special grandchildren, Christian and Kianna Andersen. Also left to remember Gus are his two brothers, George (Tina) Kraft and Gordon (Connie) Kraft. Gus was predeceased by his parents, Maud Kraft in 2000 and George Kraft earlier this year.
