Obituary of Arthur Oscar Gerber

October 2, 2021 - Calgary, Alberta
Arthur Gerber of Calgary, AB, passed away surrounded by his family, after a short illness, on Saturday, October 2, 2021 at the age of 92 years.
Arthur was a homebuilder, a carpenter and a handyman. There wasn't anything he couldn't fix, and he loved doing it. He enjoyed sports and travel, but mostly he loved his family and treasured the times we were together. He will always be remembered for his devotion to our mom over the last several years.
He will lovingly be remembered by his wife of 69 years Elsie, children, Maureen Pyper (Roy), Dale Gerber (Sharon), Bruce Gerber (Shelley), Donna Bauer (Butch), and Kevin Gerber (Joanne). He leaves his grandchildren who he was so proud of, Justin Pyper (Heather), Steve Pyper (Leanne), Sean Pyper (Jenn), Lisa Challes (Peter), Ryan Gerber (Alicia), Jenna Reid (Jay), Scott Gerber (Kelley), Robin Gerber (Kira), Julie Bartman (Catlin), Adam Gerber (Ashley), and Hayley Gerber (Kory). He also leaves his sweet great-grandchildren, another source of immense pride to him, Elijah, Kyla, Cameron, Charlotte, Ava, Josh, Noah, Adalyn, Cole, Kian, Finn, Brooklyn and Joel Arthur. Also surviving him are his brother Ray, and sisters-in-law Doreen, Eileen and Lois, as well as our dear family friend Doris Harris.
