Gilbert BROSSEAU

BROUSSEAU Gilbert Alan (Gib). August 23, 1928 – May 28, 2012. Gib’s final days were spent in the palliative care unit at Surrey Memorial Hospital with his wife, Sylvia by his side at his passing. Born in North Battleford, Saskatchewan, he was predeceased by his wife Gladys, parents Gedeon (Ged) and Annie, siblings Annette, Doreen, Ken and Keith. He is survived by his wife of 21 years, Sylvia, daughter Lauren, son Jeff (Karen), granddaughter Raven, grandson Connor, step daughter Tracy (Ron) and her children Shawn and Jacqueline, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Gib left high school at age 16 to join the army during World War II. Following this, he began training as a psychiatric nurse. It was while working at the Saskatchewan Hospital that he met and married Gladys Stahl. A devoted family man, involved in coaching minor hockey, and on the Battlefords Union Hospital Board, he most enjoyed visiting and loved sharing stories. Although saddened by Gladys’ early passing, Gib was fortunate to find and marry Sylvia Danyk with whom he spent the remainder of his life residing in Surrey where he enjoyed golfing with his buddies. Ever pragmatic to the very end, Gib was very philosophical about the end to come and felt that he was ready for the next stage. A memorial service will occur at Fraser Heights Funeral Home on June 9 @ 2p.m. in Surrey, B.C. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, there be simple reflection.
