Suddenly and tragically on the afternoon of 15 January 2009, as a result of a collision with a passenger aircraft. Cesar Emilio Gander, third generation Park citizen, loyal and loving mate, father, son, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend. The son of Consuelo and Arnaldo Goose, Cesar Emilio was born, bred, and educated in The Park. While a student at the University of West Terrier, he founded GooseBook and, after graduation, he opened GanderMatch.com and CyBird Dating Services, two of the most successful mating services in The Park.
An enthusiastic entrepreneur, Cesar was an ardent supporter of cross-border trade and a vocal advocate of interspecial harmony. Described as a “passionately patriotic Park citizen,” Cesar strongly believed that Park talent should be fostered and encouraged to remain in The Park and, to that end, he founded The Park’s first Avian mentoring programme, BirdBrains.
A true “Gander’s Gander,” Cesar leaves a flock of mourners, including his parents, his mate, Belinda Goose, goslings Sarah, George, Millie, Charles, Anthony, Gwendolyn, Henry, Antoinette, Marguerite, and Phoebe, his sisters Carmelita and 27 AZ Archon, Jacinta Goose, his brothers Manuel and Romero, and his many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
Donations in his memory may be made to BirdBrains, to the Trauma Centre at the University of West Terrier Medical College, or to Goose & Gander Search and Rescue Association of The Park (GGSRAP).
