JO/media/cherishedmemoriesfs/John-Lynda.jpgHN & LYNDA GAWRYLUK

The Gawryluk's Elk Valley roots trace back to the early 1900's when John's great grandparents immigrated from the Ukraine to the small mining community of Michel. A lifetime resident of Fernie, John enjoys working closely with generations of families he has known throughout his life, as well as meeting residents new to the area. Previous to becoming a licensed Funeral Director & Embalmer John worked in the local coal mines and as a paramedic for the BC Ambulance Service.

Lynda was born in Yorkton, Saskatchewan but has called Fernie home since 1971. Blessed to have been a stay-at-home mom for 15 years, she now enjoys her career as a Funeral Director and working side by side with John. 

Married for 32 years, John & Lynda have four sons: Nathan, Joshua, Kyle and Jordan, and five beautiful grandchildren: Hailey, Lily, Kayden, Emma & Delilah.
