Obituary of Gunnar Krantz

It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Gunnar Krantz, resident of Dawson Creek, British Columbia, on Wednesday, February 23, 2022, at the age of 89 years.

Gunnar Krantz was born May 10, 1932, in Hythe, Alberta.  He was the second son of Matias and Elisabeth Krantz.  He married Mabel Tofteland on November 24,1955.  Their children Elvin born 1956, Thomas 1958, Lisa 1960, and Toni in 1961.  The family moved to the Tupper, BC area in 1962 and that is where Gunnar and Mabel resided until 2017 when they moved to Dawson Creek, BC.

Gunnar worked as a carpenter and a general contractor.  He always had a crew of the most entertaining characters.  ie Mark Fletcher.  Gunnar had a very dry sense of humour and loved a good story.

He had a great love for horses, but his greatest love was Mabel.

Gunnar was predeceased by his wife Mabel; son Elvin; great grandson Damian; siblings Arnold, Jim, and Agnes; and brothers in-law John and Tom.

He leaves to mourn his children Thomas (Lori), Lisa and Toni; grandchildren Korlee, Talyn (Leon), Kirsti (Ryan), Kelsey (Gerritt) and Kyler; great grandchildren Dane, Kensi, Brooks, Odessa, Andi, Oslo, and Rori as well as many extended family and friends

A celebration of life will be held at a later date. For friends so wishing, donations may be made in memory of Gunnar to a charity of your choice.
