Dee Cernile of SVEN GALI Passes

After a lengthly battle with cancer Dee Cernile passed away this morning. Dee was the guitarist in Canadian Metal band Sven Gali in the late 80’s and early 90’s. The band reunited in 2007 for a single show and have since played the occasional date.

During his illness Dee was focused on getting well and in helping others in their battle as well as just living better. He fought a courageous battle and survived longer than the doctor’s said he would. He will live on through his music and the memories of friends, family and fans. R.I.P. Dee

This was posted on the Friends Of Dee page earlier this morning:

“After such a courageous journey 2 days ago Dee told us that he had nothing more to do here and he wanted to pass away to do what he needed to do elsewhere. This morning Dee got his wish and took his last breath. He went so very peacefully with love surrounding him and his hand held. He is now resting in peace. His family would like to thank everyone for all of your love and support.”
