GROVE, Laurie Darryl
1949 – 2022
Laurie Darryl Grove (GUS) entered the presence of his Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, on Friday August 12, 2022 at the age of 73 years. He courageously dealt with Heart and Cancer issues for many years. He was born in Edmonton, AB on January 11, 1949, along with his twin sister, Lesley.

Laurie was a Husband, Father, Grandfather, Brother, Brother-in-Law, Uncle, Friend and a Cowboy at heart.
He had careers as a GWG salesman, Farrier, Business Owner, Land Appraiser and Realtor.
Gus loved to talk to anyone walking by; His faith was strong and he loved to share it. His love of family and friends was unequaled. His easy-going personality and sense of humour will be greatly missed.
Many thanks to family, friends, the Doctors and Nurses at Penticton Regional Hospital and the wonderful people at Interior Health for all the care provided for our Gus.

    Bryant, Engie, Leslie, Jim and families. May you hold dear in your hearts your treasured memories. I have some wonderful memories of time spent with "Gus." As an accomplished western equestrian and horseman he was an amazing mentor to me in equine behaviour and horsemanship. It seems like it was just yesterday that we ventured out on some awesome horse pack trips in the mountains of the Ashnola River near Cathedral Lakes National Park with Earl, Wilson and Jerry. More recently on my return to Penticton I enjoyed some wonderful visits sharing memories with Laurie. A life well lived. - Bruce Kay

    Leslie, Jim, Bryant, Engie and families. My sincerest and deepest condolences on the passing of my good friend and best man at my 1968 wedding, Laurie "Gus" Grove. He was a wonderful person and a lifelong friend. I have many memories including our good times living together from September 1967 to April 1968 on Walnut Street in Vancouver. Rest in Peace (RIP) Laurie. Cheers. - Wally Malkinson
