Gary was a life-long friend.
We first met at St Stephens School in Chambly and we became part of a group (boys only) where we discussed our important matters of the day in his shed by the Richelieu River. I remember one stressful group discussion in the shed, when we were in Grade 5. What should we do about our first school dance? Should we each invite a girl to the dance? There was great scary discussion about who we should invite - which girl. This was somehow decided and we each made the call to an unsuspecting girl. My mother drove me to picked up my dates and when we entered the gym, the girls went on one side of the court and boys on the other. We even danced a few times listening to the beat of the Echoes, a local band made up of older boys from the town including my brother.
Wintertime meetings were moved to the basement of the Gibson home and many good games were played along with a few drinks behind the secret screen door. It was all fun.
St Stephen’s school ended at grade 9 and most of us went by bus the Chambly County High in St Lambert. Gary went to Bishops College School in the Eastern Townships. We did not hear much about his life there, but we enjoyed Gary’s company whenever he returned to Chambly.
Our lives changed after Quebec’s political crisis pushing old friends farther apart, but we all kept contact through and beyond our marriages. We always tried to get together when our paths crossed.
Gary was a great friend, and many memories are revisited when I hear his name.
Rest in Peace my friend.

From Micromedia to 1Science and many, many stops in between, Gary was a library vendor and salesman extraordinaire I will miss seeing you at library conferences and finding out about the latest product that our library should consider buying. Gary will be missed.

Gary was a gem of a volunteer for Thrift Shops for NOVA and his generous spirit will long be remembered by everyone who had the good fortune of meeting him. Gary was a positive and good natured person, always ready to help. He significantly contributed towards making the West Island a happier and healthier community. He will be greatly missed. May he rest in peace with his beloved Joanne.

I have known Gary since our late teen years in Chambly. Over the years we kept in touch and made a point of getting together whenever our paths crossed. I recently had a good, long, phone conversation with Gary where we discussed getting together again in Montreal once the Covid restrictions were eased off. I regret we will not get to have that meeting. Gary was a great friend and will be truely missed.
My sincere condolences to the family.

When you have known someone for over 61 years, so many memories come to mind....perhaps our get togethers here in Nova Scotia in recent years come to mind. Gary so enjoyed his visits with family & friends. This photo taken on his last visit in October, 2019.
He often talked with enthusiasm about his volunteer work with Nova and the pleasure it brought...it meant so much to him.
Thinking of Gary, the image I immediately get is that of his genuine smile and the sense of humour that went along with it.
Rest in peace my friend.....I will miss you.
