  • Rob and Cynthia Dupree says:

    Beth, Brett and Sara: We’re shocked to hear about Gary. Gary was a great buddy back in the days when I still lived in Kelowna. Unfortunately we lost touch over the years. What I liked about Gary was that he was always a straight up guy and you new where you stood with him. He will be missed by a lot of people whose lives he impacted during his life.Our condolences to you and your family.

    Dear, dear Gary, such a gracious, welcoming person who was always glad to see us. We fondly remember when we first moved to Kelowna & he made us feel like we were old friends. So easy going, even when I beat him in the Bunkhouse NFL pool. Our condolences to his family, who must miss him so much. We all do. Rest in peace, Gary.

  • Pat Bulmer says:

    So saddened to hear of Gary’s passing. I knew him from the Bunkhouse where he always treated me like a long-lost friend, was interested in what I was up to and I certainly looked forward to seeing him there. When my dad didn’t show up there for several weeks after a knee operation, Gary phoned our home to see how he was doing. We were really impressed by that. He was a good friend to my friend Brian Lightburn as well. He will indeed be missed.
