FURST, Gabor Bela

Sept. 6, 1926 – May 22, 2010

Gabor died in hospital on May 22, 2010 from cancer. He was born in Budapest, Hungary. He was predeceased by his daughter Margaret, and his wife, Barbara. When he was a teenager his parents and some family members were killed by the axis powers, and he was held in a concentration camp before escaping a few years later. Gabor qualified as a Professional Engineer in Hungary and then worked on various projects in different locations around the world. He met Barbara in Australia and later married her. They moved to Montreal, and finally to White Rock, B.C. where he went into Semi-retirement. He carried on working part time on engineering projects until 2010. Many thanks to the dedicated nurses on the palliative care ward of PA Hospital for their kindness, care and concern. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the charity or church of your choice. There will be a buffet brunch to mark the occasion on Sunday May 30 at 11:30 at the ABC Restaurant 2160 King George Hwy. Surrey, BC. All are welcome
