GIBSON, Alfred Bryce Bryce Gibson, who lived in Kelowna for the past 20 years but was a long-time resident of Calgary, passed away after a short illness on October 10, 2009 at the age of 86. He was born in England where he married Peggy Wright in 1944. They moved to Canada in 1955. Peggy passed away suddenly in 2003 and he missed her a lot.

He was a Professional Geologist and life member of APEGGA. The main focus of his career was applying computer methods to geological exploration for several Calgary oil companies. Celebrations of Bryce’s life will be held in Kelowna and Calgary at a later date.
