  • Emile was the youngest of my cousins but a number of years older than I. However, every Christmas he did not mind playing with his young cousin. We created a business called Kunka Incorporated and would develop all manner of products. I remember Emile as a kind and quiet soul with a surprising sense of humour. My sympathies to you his family. I am certain he will be greatly missed. - Posted by: Gloria Kunka (Cousin) on: Jan 12, 2022

  • We were longtime neighbours with Emile and Lois on Norilyn Bay. Always envied the lush vegetable garden growing over the back fence. Remembering how proud Emile was of his trains and wonderful woodworking. Still have the sign he carved for our cabin at the lake. Great sense of humour. Rest In Peace dear friend šŸ’• - Posted by: Bonnie and Garry Grace (Neighbours, friends) on: Jan 12, 2022
