Dear Kim, Kerri-Ann & Martin,

We were so sad to hear of Gary's passing.
Please accept our condolences at this difficult time.

I have fond memories of Gary during our Thornhill hockey days.
Gary would operate one of the doors on the bench during our son's games. I especially enjoyed Gary's wit and dry sense of humour, which provided many a laugh. His in game comments were priceless! I am grateful that I was able to share those fun times with him knowing how much he enjoyed watching Martin play.

Rest in Peace Gary.

Dear Kim, KerriAnn & Nate, Martin and all your family, please accept our condolences at this sad time.
We’re glad we got to meet and hang out a little with Gary at your and Nate’s wedding in Cabo in 2016, KerriAnn.
Your Dad was soft spoken, a sweet guy, with a twinkle in his eye, looking so handsome in this great picture.
I remember he said how glad he was to be there, as he almost wasn’t able to make it.
We’re grateful we were able to share that happy time with him, and to see the love and pride he had for you in his eyes.
God bless Gary and all of you.
Love, Roxane and Chris Bacher & Family
