Celebration of Life is planned for Saturday, April 4 at 3pm at the Sicamous Legion
Sadly, Gus passed away on March 10, 2015 at the age of 89 years.
A young adventurer from Quebec, Gus hopped a freight train heading west, looking for work among other things. For many years he worked in the logging industry around the Arrow Lakes, Nakusp, Revelstoke, and the Sicamous area where he and his wife Clara settled 50 years ago.
Gus was a man of many interests. He loved to fly, so did Clara, and they
travelled far and wide in their own airplane. He loved to drive a truck, and
he continued to drive a water truck up in the oil patch until he was in his
80’s. Another thing he loved was the sun and he spent many a season
under the Arizona skies enjoying the company of friends.
Gus is predeceased by his wife Clara (2004) and is survived by his friend and partner Lucy.
We would like old friends and family to get together and bring their stories about Gus’ happy and colorful life. A Celebration of Life is planned for Saturday, April 4 at 3pm at the Sicamous Legion hall upstairs (use back entrance), 322 Main Street, Sicamous, V0E 2V0.
In lieu of flowers, if you wish, please make a donation to the Sicamous
Legion, Branch 99 or the charity of your choice.
