Dear Marie: All our good memories of Dawson/Portlock Islands include you and Gary. Please accept our condolences on the loss of a great guy. Gary will long be remembered for his good humour and his love of the Desbarats area - hunting, fishing, sailing, just relaxing and (yes) partying.
Sincerely, Jim & Alice

Aunt Marie, Sherri and Rob, Kailee, Tyler and Candace, my heart goes out to all of you. Gary was deeply loved and he will be deeply missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. Wishing I could be there. I loved his quiet and kind presence and gentle humour. We will always remember his ability to go fishing in any weather including the snow and ice of a November day in Northwestern Ontario. Thinking of all of you. Love Beth
