Gary Leonard Palmberg

Gary Leonard Palmberg passed away suddenly Saturday, March 3rd in his home. He will be missed by family, all his friends at the Campbell River Legion and in the local business community.

He is predeceased by his father Victor Palmberg and common-law wife Victoria Dubois. Survived by his Mother: Ina Palmberg, Sons: Bill (Karen) Palmberg, Kirk (Margie) Palmberg, Daughter: Liisa McGrady, grandchildren: Ethan, Laine, Seth, Jacob, Elizabeth, Aaron, Abigail, Christopher and Susan, Brother: Gord (Sue) Palmberg of Galliano Island, B.C. Sister: Gail (Brian) Shaw from Abbotsford, B.C., and niece and nephews: Memosa and Leif Palmberg, Randy, Kevin and Travis Shaw.

Gary was a member of the Campbell River Legion. He ran a farm in Bellingham, and then moved to Campbell River where he operated several taxi cabs for Beeline Cabs. In Gary’s leisure time he enjoyed fishing and cooking family dinners when his kids were young.

Gary was a very social fellow whose kitchen table was always available for visitors to stop by for a coffee or drink.

After watching his father and other family members succumb to Alzheimers we request donations to be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of B.C., in his name at #300-828 West 8th Ave., Vancouver, B.C. V5Z-1E2.

A celebration of life will be held at the Campbell River Legion Sunday, March 25th at 1PM.
