Gary Phillip Gunn, age 80 years, passed away on Monday, January 25, 2021 at the Brandon Regional Health Centre. Born in Winnipeg on July 31, 1940, Gary grew up on a farm in Greenridge, MB and worked as a truck driver for Texaco. After attending DeVry Institute of Technology in Toronto, ON, he worked for Air Canada, then at the DEW Line, Resolute Bay and Big Trout Lake before settling in Brandon, MB where he worked with Transport Canada at the Brandon Municipal Airport from 1966-1995 as an Electronic Communications and Navigations Technician. Gary acquired his pilot license, volunteered as a Cubs and Scouts leader, was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion and Central United Church. Gary was a talented musician who played piano, saxophone and trumpet. He played with numerous bands over the years, including when he and Myrna travelled to Mesa, AZ for the winter. Gary will be lovingly remembered by his son Dana (Merina) and granddaughters Jesse and Jaeda; daughter Maureen Gunn (Mike Cooper); and sister Sylvia (Clarence) Yahnke.

I was just made aware that Gary had passed . On behalf of my wife Judy, I would like to express our sincere condolences to the family for their loss. Gary and I played together in two different bands - Val Vista Friday afternoon jam and that out in Mesa East Wednesday jam. Gary always had a smile and certainly enjoyed his music. I found Gary to be unassuming, most cooperative and very much a gentleman. He was fun to be with on stage. He was a talented man and will be missed.
Sincerely, Terry Lowry (Clarinet/Sax/Bass. Nanaino BC

Gary played his saxophone at the Jam Session in my park, Mesa East, for many seasons. I also knew Myrna! They are both so dear to so many here in my community! We will really miss his sweet playing and their friendship!

Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of Gary. I had the privilege of meeting him in Mesa, AZ and of enjoying many hours of jamming together. To me, he was a gentle giant both personally and musically and he had such a wonderful impact on all who were blessed to see him perform. Ray Titiryn, Edmonton AB

Diane and Family, I was very sad to learn of Gary's passing. I knew him from your children coming to Meadow's school, and what a fine gentleman and excellent father who was so proud of his family. May fond memories sustain you at this time. Sincere Condolences on your loss. Meryl Orth (Dana's Gr. 1 teacher)
