GREGORY ERNEST GRIMOLFSON
February 25, 1954 - March 1, 2021
He will be lovingly remembered by his family: daughter Joanna Grimolfson, son Erik Grimolfson, and daughter Alana Grimolfson (Sam); granddaughters, Blaire Grimolfson and Andi Grimolfson; sister Darlene Chartier (Claude), sister Joanne Matheson (Tom), brother Johnny Renaud (Kerri), all his nieces and nephews, and special long-time friends, Bob, Richard, John and Marie. He was predeceased by his parents, Kris and Johanna Grimolfson.
Gregory cherished his family and friends. He loved his children with all his heart and his grandchildren were the bright light in his life. He enjoyed visits as well as long deep talks with his children and loved doting on his granddaughters. He was always ready with words of advice and encouraged his children to follow their hearts. He believed in his children wholeheartedly and ensured that they knew how much they were loved.
Gregory always felt at home in the outdoors and on the water. He loved playing all sports, especially hockey. He was a journeyman carpenter by trade and meticulous in his work. He was intelligent and creative, often looking for ways to improve or create something. He shared his love of music with his children; picking up his guitar and playing any song by ear. He believed in reflecting on and improving himself; finding peace and serenity through AA and his religion.
You are so loved Dad
and will forever be missed.
We will have a Celebration of Life at a later date.
We would like to thank the Stonewall Hospital staff and palliative care team for their outstanding care and compassion.
In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to the Canadian Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation.

Roy and I want to offer our condolences on the loss of your Dad and Afi to your children. Your Dad loved to spend time with Roy sharing stories of years gone by at the Gudmundson farm and there were many. Those were such special times for your Dad Kenny and Gene. He will be missed here at the Lodge. Again our sympathies and love to all of you. Roy and Carol - Posted by: Carol Gudmundson (friend) on: Mar 07, 2021
Dear Joanne, Tom and family. So sorry to read about the loss of your brother. It is hard to lose someone so young and so dear and especially during this time when gatherings to remember are not permitted. May fond memories bring you some comfort. - Posted by: Thea Haut Ostermann (Friend) on: Mar 07, 2021
I am saddened to hear the news of Gregory's passing. I have memories of playing at his home as children as well as playing hockey together as youngsters. He was an awesome hockey player that played at a top level every shift. When winter was over, it was ball hockey in the West Park where I'm sure he outscored everyone. After losing touch for many years, I am thankful my brother and I got to visit Gregory a couple of years ago. I have a heavy heart and won't ever forget you my friend. My sincere condolences to Gregory's family. Till we meet again my friend. - Posted by: Ron Whiteway (Friend) on: Mar 06, 2021

Sincere condolences to family and friends! Working with Gregory was always an adventure and fun! You never knew where you would find him, one day we didn’t know where he had gone in the bush and as we looked for him, he laughed and we spotted him way up at the top of a spruce tree! Lots and lots of good memories! Rest In Peace My Friend - Posted by: Debbie Kowalchuk (Friend and coworker) on: Mar 06, 2021
