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.
