It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our much-loved father, grandfather and great grandfather in St. Albert at the age of 103. He will be affectionately remembered by his children: Gloria (Peter), Charlene, and Leroy (Dina); grandchildren: Lori (Byron), Jennifer (Jamie), Nicole (Michael), Allison (Vince), Briana (Mark), and Cameron (Juli); and six great grandchildren.
Gabriel was predeceased by his wife of 72 years, Christine, his grandson, parents and six siblings.
Born in Faith, Alberta, he married Christine Harty and farmed in the Faith area until moving to Fort Kent in 1953 and, subsequently, St Albert in 1995. He had a strong faith, work ethic and determination, loved his family and was a frequent community volunteer.
