GUDMUNDSON, Vincent GUDMUNDSON VINCENT COLLISHAW GUDMUNDSON was born May 13, 1941 and passed away peacefully with family by his side, on Tuesday, February 13, 2024 at the age of 82 years.
Vince will be remembered for his warm laugh, patience and kind heart. He loved the outdoors, nature, was an avid hunter and fisherman, and was a good friend to many.
Vince was born to Roseanne and Steini Gudmundson and grew up in Elfros, Saskatchewan in a small farmhouse with his sister Chris and brothers, Leo and Ernie. He and Leo rode horses to school. Some winters, the snow was almost as deep as the telephone poles.
He met his highschool sweetheart at a dance in Wynyard, Saskatchewan and she was smitten with his handsome looks and knew they would be together forever. He married Glory McLennan in 1967. They have four children.
Vince was a proud member of the RCMP and joined the force in 1965. He was stationed in Nelson, Castlegar and in Ocean Falls, BC, where he and Glory ran the police station and jail below their apartment. When Vince received his Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Alberta in 1974, he took his skills to the Forensic Science and Crime Detection Lab in 1969 and worked in the Hair and Fibre section of the lab for ten years in Edmonton and then ten years in Halifax. He was proud of his work.
Upon retirement, Vince and Glory opened two Tim Hortons franchises in Lethbridge, Alberta and heard many cop and donut jokes. They moved on from there and Vince worked briefly as a crop adjuster for AFSC, and then found a role he loved, working a dream job with his good friend Oscar Walter, helping and laughing with him on his farm in Lethbridge.
Vince will be missed dearly by his siblings and their spouses, Leo and Linda, Ernie and Cheryl, and Chris and Fred.
He will be especially missed by his wife of 57 years, Glory, as well as by his children, grandchildren and great granddaughter; Lori, Jaden (Ethan), Kian and Emma of Anmore and Port Moody, BC., Cam (Cherry) Ragnar, Gunnar and Brynjar of Fort McMurray. Kurt (Trina), Kyla and Griffin of Fort McMurray and Dori (Becky) Avery and Colten of Coaldale.
The last few years of Vince’s life were tough, as the cancer he fought hard against advanced after a 16-year battle. He continued to cherish his time with family and had his final coffee meet up with friends last week. His grandkids will certainly miss hearing all those old RCMP stories. He lives on in the hearts of all that knew him.
A Celebration of Vince’s Life will be held at a later date, with details to follow.
