Garry was born on August 2, 1945 in Cut Knife Saskatchewan. He spent his formative years on a family farm outside the community before settling in North Battleford in 1965. Garry’s love of work was his demonstrated through the success of plumbing and heating work through his time in Saskatchewan. His entrepreneurial spirit lead him to leave Saskatchewan where he lived in many different communities in Alberta and enjoying winters in Yuma. What always took precedence over his love of work was the love that he had for his wife of 52 years, Gail, and his daughters, grand children and great children. His spirit was always positive, and he had a love for life. He was quick to joke, have fun, and was always available if someone needed help. He is survived by and will be deeply missed by his loving partner Gail; daughters Lisa (Dave) Ling, Jolene (Harold) Spies; grandchildren Matthew (Jorden) Doom, Stephanie Fast, Mason (Krista) Fulop, Lexis (Tim) Fulop, Manfred Lott, Rebecca (Matthew) Fast, Maxwell Lott, Kallista (Brody) Lacroix, and Jayce Lacroix. He is also a proud great grandpa to Kaylie, Jagger, Maddie, Alice, Scarlett, Stella, and Elliot. He was predeceased by his daughter Carrie, parents Lewis and Edith, in-laws Murray and Freda and brother in law Wayne.
