Paul Gergely

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Paul Gergely, at the age of 80, on Friday, May 18th.

Born and raised in Revelstoke, Paul moved on to Castlegar and Nelson where he and his lovely wife Carol raised their family and Paul indulged his passion for music. Paul plied his trade with many musical groups; especially as long time member and director of the Nelson Community Band.

In addition to his musical pursuits, Paul enjoyed his bowling, golf, “coffee-time” and aqua-fitness. He often kept busy sorting music or volunteering at the local Chamber of Mines. The highlight of any week would be a high stakes card game with the “gang”.

Paul is predeceased by his wife Carol, twin brother Ted and sister Margaret. He is survived by his daughters Linda, Sharon (Steve) Fabro, Barb and granddaughters Marley and Abbey.

Thanks for all the beautiful music. ACelebration of Life will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Paul’s memory may be sent to the Nelson Community Band or the MS Society of BC. Arrangements are under the direction of Thompson Funeral Services Ltd.
