Hasty-P Vetern Passes Away

Ivan Gunter, M.M. (WW2 Decorated Veteran and member of the Hastings Prince Edward Regiment), beloved husband of the late Irene, loving father of Geoff & Diane of Delburne, Alta., Lynne & Garry Ackerman of Stouffville and Steve & Debbie Gunter of Bancroft, loving grandfather of Caroline, Daniel, Becky, Peter, Garett, Jordan, Brent, Sarah, Michelle, Amanda and the late Ryan, great grandfather of 14 great grandchildren, dear brother of Shirley Turner of Blackstock and the late Blake and Dale. Ivan will be fondly remembered by his sisters in law, Joyce Gunter of Newmarket and Jessie Gunter of Blackstock. I was looking forward to seeing Ivan at the Landing of Sicily on the 10th of July service. After the service we all have a spaghetti dinner with the cheapest wine they can find. When I asked if they still serve it in the old mess tins and was told no because aluminum is linked to alzhimer(sp), and I replied do you link these guys or over 90 really care about that they are glad to still being alive. Ivan was a funny guy. When I asked him his address so he could sign book of the Regiment he said he lived in the half-way house. I asked where was the half-way house he remarked half-way between the beer store and the liquor store... and it was there exactly.... the RJ Brooks Apartments. Ivan has now joined the White Battalion and is now with his fellow comrads.... Farewell Ivan... Mcpl Jones(rt)
