Obituary of Claude Gallinger

Claude Gallinger of Tofield, AB passed away peacefully on December 24, 2020 after a brief fight against cancer. He will be remembered by many as ridiculously generous, a person who emanated deep warmth and who could talk to pretty much anybody. He had a quiet presence and a sly, mischievous grin that somehow mixed with a smile. As one of his favorite musicians, Willie Nelson sang, Claude chose to live “on the sunny side of the street”. He loved to travel and to explore new places which led him all over North America. For a prairie born boy he had an affinity for boats and water. Among his favorite places were on his boat in the middle of Kootenay Lake with his kids and grandchildren and slowly trolling cold waters fishing. He prized the open road, snowmobiles, great food and the art of BBQing. His family loved him and he loved them back two-fold. There will be so many times we will think of you Claude. And the feelings that will come with the thoughts will be wonderful. Happy journeys Gilley. Due to Covid19 restrictions no funeral service will be held. Cremation has taken place. Memorial donations may be made directly to the charity of one's choice.
