George Gustafson

On November 22, 2022 George Gustafson went home to be with his Lord.
He will be lovingly remembered by: his children Linda, Brenda, Gregg, Darren, Brent and their spouses; six grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren. George was predeceased by his beloved wife Margaret (nee Thomas) in 2012, his parents Gustaf and Gina, and siblings Carl, Evelyn, and Lillian.

George was born in Southey, Saskatchewan and spent his formative years in Humboldt.
He served in the RCAF during WWII as a Leading Aircraftsman (LAC) from 1943-46. After the war, he met his future wife Margaret in Saskatoon and after their marriage in 1948 they travelled to Edmonton to establish a home and family. George earned his Registered Industrial Accountant designation and worked at General Tinning, Christenson and MacDonald Construction, and Revenue Canada. Important to George and Margaret’s lives was their worship at Bethel Gospel Chapel where they made many lifelong friends.

Now George and Margaret are at last together again and rejoicing in heaven.

The family would like to thank George’s ‘loves’ and ‘sweethearts’ from the 1st Floor Beverly neighbourhood of Miller Crossing Care Centre for their care and kindness. A Celebration of Life will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, January 6, 2023 at Bethel Gospel Chapel, 11461-95 Street, Edmonton.

our deepest sympathy and real appreciation for our dear Bro. George Gustafson. George and Margaret were the first couple that invited us to their home in 1967 when we first arrived in Canada and we met them at the thanksgiving conference at the Jubilee Auditorium in Edmonton. we have so many fond memories of them, thank the Lord that they both are absent from the body and present with Him,
with christian love and prayers, Joe and Anna Joseph

Linda,
Losing a parent, especially the second one, is never easy.
Seeing your Dad’s obituary in the Edmonton Journal brought back a flood of memories from the 1960’s. About visiting your home bungalow on 111 Avenue after school at McDougall and the basement bedroom you shared with Brenda that he creatively built with the desk shelf along one long entire wall. And later on, on the occasional winter morning when he kindly made extra time to also stop to pick me up at my house on 108 street in his spotless older cream and salmon pink auto to drive us down Kingsway Avenue to Vic Comp so that we didn’t have to trudge through the snow in the cold.
My thoughts are with your family as you go through this difficult transition period in your lives during the holidays.
With sympathy,
Pat Howard
