BUCKBOROUGH, Gary Crawford

May 27, 1932 — March 6, 2022

At the age of 89, on March 6, 2022, Gary Buckborough passed away peacefully while surrounded by family. He will be deeply missed by his family: Agda Buckborough, his wife of 62 years; his children Bruce (Lucy) and Ruth (Chris); grandchildren Brian (Jeannine), Jennifer (Andrew), and Lisa; and his great-grandchildren Emily, Olivia, Connor, Aubree, Hudson, and Kayne.

Known for his sharp wit and sense of humour, Gary led a rich and full life. He was born and raised in Winnipeg, MB and moved to BC in 1959. Gary and Agda married and raised their family in BC, and they settled in Kelowna, BC in 2013. He and Agda travelled the world together. Gary had a long career in Insurance & Risk Management until he retired. He spent most of his retirement years volunteering with the RCMP Community Policing in both White Rock and Kelowna.

The family would like to express a special thank-you to the nurses, doctors, and staff at Kelowna General Hospital, as well as his family doctor, Dr Schriemer.

Family and friends will honour Gary, each in their own way, no formal service will be held.
