September 27, 1947 – June 23, 2012

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear husband, father, and grandfather after a lengthy illness.

Gary was born in Vienna, Austria and was pre-deceased by parents David and Theresa. His family immigrated to Canada in November, 1953 and he has lived in Vancouver most of his life. He married the love of his life in October, 1979 and they moved to Terrace in September, 2007.

He is survived by his devoted wife Vicki, son Richard (Miho), and grandsons Ryker and Kyler; daughter Sabrina and grandson Kevin.

The family would like to thank Dr. Lennox Brown; the wonderful Paramedics who came to our home so often (special thanks to the 2 special ladies for their lovingkindness in my time of grief); the Long Term Home Support nurses; “We Care” home support, Pallative Care, the Hospice Society, Medichair, VitalAire, the Red Cross Loan Program, Meals on Wheels, and all the others who helped me make my husband’s wish to die at home a reality.

To honour and respect his wishes, no service will be held. A family celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to your favorite charity, preferably in support of Israel.

Your condolences will be approved within one business day. You will need a valid Facebook account. Please email us if you have any questions.
