Garry worked at Dairyland, where he served as President of the Teamsters Union. He also spent more than 25 years volunteering for the Fraser Valley Men’s soccer league, where he made many friends along the way.
Garry could always be seen with a smile on his face. He loved traveling to Hawaii and more recently living as a snowbird in Yuma, Arizona. Always a giving person, one of his last wishes was for his body to be utilized for research at UBC Medical school. Garry did not wish to have a formal service; however, the family will have a private celebration of life.
In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be sent to the Alzheimer’s Society of BC.


Garry we will miss your smile which you always had when we met up with you in the lobby or walking in the neighborhood. We had so many laughs together in the 3 short years that we knew you. Rest In Peace. You’ll be forever in our hearts.

Rest in peace my friend. You are a true legend of the Fraser Valley Soccer League and will never be forgotten, I strive to follow in the path you made knowing I will never come close to the standards you set.
