On November 28th, 1958, Gary married his lifelong love, Isabel Sim of Westville, Nova Scotia. Together they had five children. Athletics was a passion of Gary’s. He was the captain of his high school basketball team and was also involved in gymnastics, track & field, and baseball. His love of sports continued through adulthood coaching youth sports. Golfing, reading, fishing, camping, cooking, vintage cars, and traveling were some of his many lifelong passions. Gary was a firm believer in giving back to the community and did through his involvement with the Masonic Lodge, Kinsmen, as well as Saskatchewan Roofing Contractors Association.
