GUNN, William Carey

GUNN, William Carey

GUNN, William Carey....ALPHA: February 25, 1912.

"Those of you who see this will read that William Carey Gunn is dead. Don’t believe a word of it!! I am now in the presence of my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, and my beloved wife, Dorothy-- alive and well, in a house that is immortal and with a body that death cannot touch and that sin cannot taint---a body that is fashioned like unto HIS glorious body.

I was born of the flesh in Pithapurum, India, in 1912. I was born of the Spirit in Pithapurum, in 1920. That which is born of the flesh may die. That which is born of the Spirit will live forever.

Joining me one day will be my daughter, Yvonne Pirtle, and her husband, Charles, from Houston, Texas, and my son, Darryl, from Mississauga, Ontario Canada."

Carey celebrated his 100th birthday on the 25th of February of this year. Pre-deasing him was his brother, Doug, and his wife, Afton. Carey is survived by the following loved ones: his sister-in-law, Elsie Oates; his nephews Jack Gunn and wife, Helen, and their family; Howard Malm and wife, Caroline, and their family; Wayne Oates and wife, Gloria, and their family; his niece, Sylvia Jones and husband, Russ; and his many dear and loving friends in Kelowna, especially Betty Daft; his "family of friends" at the Delta Grand Hotel and The Yellow House; and those at the Grovsner House.

A Funeral Service will be held Friday, March 9, at 3:30 p.m., in the chapel at First Memorial Funeral Services, 1211 Sutherland Avenue, Kelowna.

In lieu of flowers, remembrances or memorials in Carey's honor may be made to "Living Truth, Box 6100, Station "B", Toronto, Ontario M2K-2Z5." A Private Family interment will take place in the Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery.
