September 1, 1922 — October 24, 2020
Aime Gagnon passed away peacefully and went to be with his Lord, October 24, 2020 at the age of 98.
Born September 1, 1922 in La Flèche, SK and lived in Kelowna, BC since 1967, Amie’s memory is carried on by his loving wife of 73 years, Rose, and his 8 surviving children: daughters Marlys (Grant Wolfe), Gloria (Glen Weisbach), Rosanne (Todd Ryder), & Paulette (Richard Munro); and sons Hubert (Darlene), Ray (Donna), Henry (Sue) & Daniel (Patsi). He had 37 grandchildren, 36 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great-grandchild. He was predeceased by his two of his 10 children: Glenda (Brian McKinnon) & Paul (Misty).
After retiring as a lifelong auto body mechanic, Aime & Rose spent 14 years doing missionary work in several countries. Aime is best known for his steadfast honour, integrity, and love for his family. He spent his last years helping his kids with many projects and loved his years on the farm. He was productive on the farm, making equipment, building outbuildings, and repairing fences, up to the last few months of his life. He even hand-crafted his own beautiful casket, completely finishing the inside with satin upholstering. He played bridge and canasta right up to his 98th birthday and still shared life lessons and advice to any family member as it was needed.
