Garry earned his Master of Acupuncture Degree from Tri-State College of Acupuncture after retiring from carpentry.
He was a longtime member of the Cornwall Independence Day Committee. A family statement reads: “Garry made an impact on everyone who met him. He was a multi-talented autodidact with an artistic soul. Hard-working, resourceful, and self-reliant, he had a particular sense of humor and outlook on life. Dad always signed off with a hearty kiss: ‘mwah!’ He will be missed greatly”.

He was the proud grandfather of Benjamin, 9 and Lydia, 4.
