Donnelly Gary

DONNELLY, Gary James P.Eng

October 9, 1938 — February 5, 2017

Born October 9, 1938, passed away peacefully from an ongoing illness on February 5, 2017. Gary is sadly predeceased by his loving wife of 44 years Tannis; mother Marjorie Hillis and father James. Gary is survived by his son, James (Marianne); daughter Cathy Donnelly (Chris); three granddaughters Josey Marquardt, Emme and Kelsey Donnelly; brother Kurt (Elaine); four sisters Pat Donnelly (Dennis – predeceased), Glenda Donnelly (Rick McCallum), Janice Pattinson (Frank) and Kathy Blackford (Dave); brother-in-law Tom Hall; sisters-in-law Bobbie Madill and Noreen Scott as well as his life-long best friend Jim (Sharon) Lawrence and dear friend Ellie Ainsworth. Also remembering him are numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

 

Gary was extremely successful in his chosen field as a Professional Engineer and led many substantial projects all over North America before making Kelowna his home for more than 30 years. In retirement, he pursued his passions of travel and golf as well as spending time with family and friends. He will be remembered as a devoted loving husband, an amazing father and role model, a wonderful big brother, and a kind and loyal friend. The family would like to thank Independence Matters for all the kind, loving care and support they gave not only to Gary but to all his family. The family would also like to thank Peace Arch (Oceanside) for the excellent care they gave Gary during his final months.

We are truly blessed to have known him and to have been a part of his life. He will be greatly missed by all! A Celebration of Life will be held at a future date yet to be determined. In lieu of flowers, a gift in living memory of Gary can be made to BC Hospice & Palliative Care Association https://bchpca.org.
