Gene will be lovingly remembered by the Gartner children, Sharon, Anita, Don and Doreen; grandchildren, Raena, Justin (Deanna), Tyler, Brandy (Mike); great granddaughter, Ally; sister, Evelyn Young; nieces and nephews, Carol, Arlene, Colleen, Bob, Gae, Tim, Rhonda, Kim, Scott, Bryon, and Kelly; step-children, Anne (Allan) Wilhelms, Faye (Dennis) Hugo, Shirley Edmunds, Beth (Charles) Lasater, Lyle (Jan) Edmunds and Pat (Shirley) Edmunds; step-grandchildren, Desiree, Lee, Jason, Shyler, Megan, Devon, Kirsten and Braden; best friends from Tisdale, John and Elaine Guest, as well as numerous other relatives and friends.

Gene was born and raised in Dilke, SK. He joined the Royal Canadian Navy in 1943 and served on the HMCS Haida. After WWII Gene returned to the prairies with his wife Lillian to raise a family, and farm in the Dummer, SK area.

He was the kind of father who never used a foul word, who would drive through snow storms to pick up his kids, who knew the value of chocolate and ice cream and who always lit up when any of his kids walked into a room.

After becoming a widower, he married Darlene Edmunds of Tisdale, SK and they travelled frequently between the farm and their home in Tisdale. He had lots of friends and loved to get together for coffee and a game of cards.

He loved to drive his tractor and looked forward to farming each spring. He was a loving, generous, devoted family man who will be sorely missed.

The family would like to thank all the medical staff who cared for Gene, especially the Renal Unit at the Regina General Hospital.

Funeral Service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 7, 2012 at Broadway United Church, 105 Broadway Avenue, Regina SK with Rev. Jim Balfour officiating.

Interment will follow in Regina Memorial Gardens.Paragon Funeral and Cremation Services entrusted with arrangements. 359-7776
