Gregor James Birnie

Born June 4, 1930, Turriff, Scotland. Died April 8, 2013, Victoria Hospice. Gregor left Scotland at 17. He loved the outdoors and made the Comox Valley his home. Gregor worked at the Pulp Mill in Campbell River for decades. He was twice married and divorced. He had a blended family of seven children. He retired in 1990 and his “golden years” began. Gregor was a fun and energetic grandfather. He was proud of his grandchildren and delighted to live long enough to welcome great grandchildren.

He fished, hunted, camped and canned. He had a special talent for garden and landscape design. His admirable work ethic defined him. He will be remembered.

The family acknowledges the excellent care Dad received while in the care of the nurses and volunteers at Hospice.
