It is with a heavy heart that we are posting about the loss this past weekend of Gunnar Bjorkland.  Gunnar started volunteering with the Festival when he was about 12 years old.  He was the volunteer you could ask do anything and he willingly went and accomplished it.  Gunnar eventually became a committee member and then he was on the Board of Directors.

Not only did Gunnar volunteer himself but he recruited his family and friends to come help.  He was a take charge kind of guy that got the job done.  We could always rely on his help and support for the Festival.

We have all lost one of the most loving and kind souls we will ever have had in our lives…..

Gunnar Bjorkland was a Shining Light not only for the Festival of {Giving} Trees…. but for everyone .

From his infectious smile and his non-stop willingness to help others and being a best friend to many. We all loved him unconditionally… for some like a brother, some like a friend , but for most of us we have lost a “family” member.

We all would like to extend our Sympathy & Condolences to Gunnar’s Family….

Just know that your Son’s soul has touched & was loved by many…

  1. To Gunnar: I will always remember the fun we had over the years at the Festival. You were so funny and always upbeat. As a volunteer and a member of the Festival of Giving Trees (FOGT) event committee, as well as a FOGT Board of Directors, you always gave 100%. You became not only a good friend but a part of our FOGT family. I will miss you always.
