Bjornson, Gunnar B. Age 66, of Brooklyn Park, died Oct, 22. A proud spirit has been set free. Gunnar was a passionate, talented pilot whose flying days were sadly cut short by a host of medical issues. He struggled valiantly to the very end, but was unable to prevail against great odds. Gunnar passed away at his beloved cabin by the river, and now flies freely and happily under his own power. Preceded in death by parents Bjorn and Birgit and sister, Sylvia. Survived by siblings, Eileen (Chris) Weber, Bryan, Kevin (Carrie), and Bruce (Judy); niece, Amanda and nephews, Luke and Bryan; our dear Auntie Matta; many loving cousins and friends. Celebration of Gunnar's life Sat., Nov. 10, 2:00 pm at West River Road Baptist Church, 8801 W. River Rd., Brooklyn Park.
