For Posterity's Sake
A Royal Canadian Navy Historical Project
In memory of those who have Crossed the Bar
GARDNER, Glynn Albert (Gus) - eased into a long, well-earned rest. A man for all seasons. Lover of opera, a wee dram, good book, licorice pipes, military bands, the sea, Nova Scotia and Marjorie - his beloved wife. Hater of brussels sprouts. Born in Manchester, UK, Gus, joined the Royal Navy, later transferring to Canada, where he proudly served the Royal Canadian Navy as a submariner until he retired. Gus was an autodidact, his thirst for knowledge only matched by his eagerness for travel and his love for his family. He was an avid reader, talented painter, exceptional dancer, and a raconteur of great tales and conjurer of fun. His wit matched his charm, his life was full and he was full of life. Grampy Gus was a father, grandfather and loyal friend. My dad - my hero, champion, defender, co-conspirator, crossword rival, and trusted confidante. Heartfelt thanks to all the staff at Maplestone Enhanced care, for the love and support to both Gus and Marjorie. A celebration of life and love - will be held at a later date. May you have fair winds and following seas and until we meet again, don't take any wooden nickels Gussy. We love you forever. Clare and Marjorie.
