We Remember

HEWKO, Gary Joseph

March 26, 1959 — December 1, 2018

Gary Joseph Hewko, born March 26, 1959, left us suddenly on Saturday, December 1, 2018.

Gary was many different things throughout his life.  He started playing hockey in his early teens, became a qualified chef, had his own business and worked in the gravel industry to name a few of those things. From an early age Gary had a love of horses and loved being on the farm.  He always had a story or two to share about some event in his life. There was never a dull moment.

Gary will be remembered and missed by his 2 boys Josiah and Nolan, his mother Florence, sister Fran (Bob), brother Greg (Corbie), several nieces and nephews, many aunts and cousins and extended family.  He was predeceased by his dad Joseph in May 2007.

A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date.  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Sindi Ahluwalia Hawkins Cancer Centre, www.bccancer.bc.ca.

    My condolences to the Hewko family. Although I haven’t seen Gary in a number of years he left a lifetime of memories for me. He was always a good friend to me and all who worked with Gary back in the Quad A parks days for the Serwa’s and Bulach’s. Gary always made us laugh with his humour and antics and will continue to do so in our memories of him.

    My condolences to the family. I met “Hewk” back in the early 80’s when he was the equipment manager/trainer for our fastpitch team. I was new to Kelowna and remember how friendly he was. He always had us laughing with a comment or story and was fun to be around.
