Percy Arthur Gustus
June 20, 1928 – February 6, 2015
Percy passed away peacefully in Kelowna BC after a lengthy period of declining health. Predeceased by his son Guy, he is survived by his wife Lil; children Regan (Bruce) and Jeffrey; and, grandchildren Devon and Bryn. Percy will be remembered for his love of family and his passion for music. He played saxophone and clarinet in many bands over the years. The family home was always filled with music and jam sessions were a regular occurrence. Born in Kelvington, SK, Percy moved his young family to Saskatoon where he worked at Merlin Motors before returning to Kelvington in 1972 to purchase a Ford-Mercury dealership. In 2000 Percy, Lil and Guy moved to Kelowna to be closer to family in BC. Percy gained new friendships through his music and enjoyed the bounty of the Okanagan. The family is grateful for the loving care and support offered by Three Links Manor during Percy’s last years. A celebration of life will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in Percy’s memory may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, www.cancer.ca.
