Gary spent his childhood years in the Georgetown, Ontario area. He had a brief naval career returning to marry his sweetheart Joan in January of 1966. They were blessed with 3 children. Gary and Joan enjoyed living in Alberta and Georgetown for many years before settling in London in the l980s. He had a love of nature and animals. An avid reader and sports fan, he passed this love onto his children and grandchildren.
Gary was a kind, and quiet man who observed and demonstrated his love by his actions and manner. His close friends enjoyed sports banter and fantasy football pool with him.
Gary is survived by his devoted wife Joan and children Bret (Marnie), Lori and Boyd. He is deeply missed by his three grandchildren Lauren, Lindsey and Connor.
He enjoyed being a caregiver to the young grandchildren during their early school years. He was always involved in their sports endeavors. He championed their efforts and encouraged their best.
Gary’s quiet presence made such a huge impact on the lives of those he loved. He was a gentle listener who engaged in conversation and made his words count.
His boys will deeply miss watching sports and the commentary they shared during these events.
Gary will also be missed by his loving dog, Benny
