He is survived by his loving family; Susan Last, his daughter, Jessica, his son Travis, his sister Jo-Ann, his niece Amy (Micah), his nephew Joshua (Kimberley), his grandson, Kaleb, grand niece Emma and extended family.
Born and raised in Penticton, Gary was a very strong, loving person, loyal Boston Bruin fan and friend to many.

He will be truly missed.
