Eugene Harvey Gunning

It is with heavy hearts and sadness that we announce the passing of Eugene Gunning on March 18, 2020 at the age of 72.

Eugene will be lovingly remembered by his daughter-in-law Roberta Gunning and son Timothy Gunning; brothers Allan (Doris), Ed (Diana), and Wayne (Yvonne); sisters-in-law Stefanie (Paul), Joyce (Lawrence), Gloria (Bob) and numerous nieces and nephews.

Eugene was predeceased by his loving wife Frances, devoted son Keith, and his parents Nellie and Albert.

Born and raised in Thalberg, Mb Gene married his childhood sweetheart and settled in Lockport, Mb to raise his family. There he built a shop and started his career as a gunsmith. Gene's Gunsmithing became a staple in the hunting and conservation community in Manitoba.

During his retirement Gene enjoyed puttering around the shop. In recent years he enjoyed drinking coffee in the house and visiting with friends that popped in. There was always someone calling or stopping by with a gunsmithing question and he always enjoyed sharing his advice and knowledge.

Cremation has taken place and a celebration of Gene's life will take place at a later date. Details to follow.

Honorary pallbearers are Eric Schafer, Johnny Morgoch, Ray Colbert, Kelly Colbert, Wayne Single, and Jim Kodak.
