Prayers and warm wishes to Bob's family and friends. During my time at St. Ann Bob was a delight. A warm, caring person who, like me, loved to talk about his cat. May his soul rest in the Peace of Christ and he enjoy the company of Mary and all the Saints.

Sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Gurnick. He always treated me great, even though I dated his daughter in high school! His sense of humor is what I appreciated most. I still tell a couple of his jokes to this day. Rest in peace sir. I'm sure your family will miss you.

Given a lot of things that made up this fella, I will miss many intelligent conversations that often were laced with due sarcasm. Owe him many thanks, for having known him as a friend. A treasured loss!

Mr. Gurnick was a lovely, creative, fun man! When I was growing up, I loved going to his home and swimming in his pool. He painted fun sea creatures on the bottom of the pool, and I loved diving down to see his paintings. He also converted a bus into a camper and he would drive his family down to Florida in the bus. I send all my love and best wishes to the wonderful Gurnick family! Your dad is smiling down at all of you!

I opened the Solar Baker obit site by chance to ref another passing, and your Father's name and picture appeared at the top of the web page. I thought to myself...'could this be my bus driver' to Glen Acres Elementary from my childhood? Sure enough...it was Mr Gurnick. I am so sorry for your families loss. I just wanted to share, that your father always took such good care of us as children...to and from school. I have nothing but good childhood memories and respect for your dad! Peace to you all through this difficult time. Sincerely, Chris Burk from his Vinton Woods bus route.
