Garry kept his love of life, sense of humor, courage and strength until the very end. He will be deeply missed. The family would like to send a very special Thank you to his team at the CLSC and aide à domicile (ASSS) as well as the REM in Val-des-Sources. They gave Garry dignified and compassionate care.

Sonya, Hilary, Annabel, our Vanessa, Hannah and Ryder.

Words can’t express the shock when my grandson, Casey, told me of Garry’s passing. Our little Freya has lost a Grampa, was one of my first thoughts and Vanessa, loved so much by our family, what she must be going through. Sonya, Garry had a wonderful, compassionate, close loving family that you created, and in his pictures it showed, his grandchildren adored him, painful that Freya didn’t get to know him more. May Garry be peaceful in his new home, free of pain. One thing I believe strongly in, “ talk about him,” laugh at memories and cry. My heart is with you all.Garry, R.I.P.

Life is not fair, you have yourselves given Gary so much support, you are such a strong family, this strength is what allowed you to have your Dad with you for the amount of time he had, he enjoyed and loved every minute with you, You have all been truly angels for your Dad. I can't find the words, no matter how much I try to help you through this sadness, I wish so much - I had that power, But Me and I am speaking for all my family we wish you to hold onto each other, remember how many times you laughed, talked and enjoyed family moments with your Dad, we never realize what we really have until it taken, Every time Gary spoke of his family it was with pride and joy, his girls were his everything and Wow when he had a son, he was more than thrilled, I have many tears for you all and I think of you all the time, I am here if you need anything, One thing I always say and it is something I never understand is Why? Life Sucks.... Please reach out if you feel you need something, sometimes a person to share your thoughts with can really help, we love you all ... and Huge Hugs to all of you....

We're spending this evening thinking of Garry & how much his family loves him & how much he loved & valued all of you guys.
So glad he was able to be part of our son's & granddaughter's lives.
Garry didn't deserve the hurdles life threw him, but with the help of his wife, children (their partners) & his grandchildren, he managed to get through them. May he rest in peace.
The love of his family is overwhelming. May Garry watch over you, guide you & protect you all.
