Donald Joseph Gozzola

Date: August 21st, 2020

It is with great sadness that the family of Donald Joseph Gozzola of Camrose, Alberta announce his passing at the age of 85 years.  Don was a Veteran, spending over 25 years serving his country in the Canadian Forces.  Born in Ottawa, he joined the Forces at the age of 17 years of age.  He met the Ruth, love of his life, while stationed in Winnipeg, where he started his family.  His postings included Germany (with the Royal Canadian Artillery Gunners), Gagetown, Petawawa (with the 427 Helicopter Squadron) and finally his retirement in Calgary (with the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry).  His career allowed him to excel physically becoming a boxing champion and his dedication to family, even when moving from base to base, allowed him to become involved in coaching little league baseball, hockey and working as a mentor in the Boy Scouts.

Don will be lovingly remembered by: his children Robin (Rhona), Everett (Donna), Tami and Loni (Kristen); son-in-law Dean (Laurie), daughter-in-law Val Ledingham; grandchildren Allan (Shayna), Kyle, Iain, Jenifer, Lena (Jared), Lance, Adria, Anthony, Jennalee, Alysha, Brook, Tamarra, Tyler, Dallas, Stephanie, Shy-lynn, Alyssa, Alia, Bella, Lucas, Tianna; great-grandchildren; Kayla, Taylor, Alivia, Benjamin, Chrissy, Raine, Walter, Dean, Hans, Elsa, Inga, Alyssandra, Anastasia, Acheron, Dawne, Isaac, Esther, Samuel, Liam, Myah, Serena, Lorenzo; great-great-grandchildren Lily, Emaleigh.

Don was predeceased by his wife of 57 years, Ruth, his son Darrell and grandchildren Mandy and Chad.

A private family celebration of life will be held at a later time.   Memorial Donations can be made to a charity of your choice.
