Gabriel (Gaby) was a die hard Montreal Canadiens fan and was actually photographed watching a Montreal Canadians Old Timers hockey game and listening to a Montreal Canadians game on his radio. There is proof of this with a photo somewhere. Gaby was a great trout fisherman and could fix anything around the house. He worked for McKay-Cocker Construction in the 60’s and then for General Motors Diesel Division in London, where he retired in 1981.
As a grandfather and the patriarch of our family, he was always willing to play with the grandchildren, he fostered a love of games and was always at the centre of our family gatherings, laughing and singing. He will be greatly missed.
A private service will be held for family members. Flowers gratefully declined. Donations can be sent to a Charity of your choice.
