At Envision, Gary and I had a common connection in that he served in the Canadian Armed Forces as a Master Warrant Officer and I served in the reserves with the 14th Service Battalion in Calgary. At the credit union he was a truly exceptional person. Kind, respectful, hard working and always had a smile. He will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family....Barry Delaney

Gary was one of the first staff members I met outside my branch when I started in 2000. It was a pleasure to meet and work with him. I never had an interaction with Gary that was not a positive experience. I will miss him. Garlyn
