With hearts heavy with sadness we announce Gary’s passing on Tuesday, September 3, 2019. He leaves to forever miss him his loving wife, Ruth; children, Breanne (Gordon) Robinson and Bradley Statham; grandson, Oliver Robinson; aunt and uncle, Ian and Brenda May; as well as many many extended family members and friends. Gary was predeceased by his mother, Moira Leonie Statham.
Gary spent his working career supporting adults with developmental disabilities and was very passionate about his work. He was a strong supporter of “community” and, when not busy with family and work responsibilities, filled his time as an avid Oceanside volunteer. Gary gave generously of his time to North Island Wildlife Recovery Center, the SOS, Rathtrevor Nature House & Tourist Information; and was a host at Sproat Lake Camp. He was the proud recipient of the Parksville & District Chamber of Commerce Volunteer of the Year in 2008.
In his early retirement years, Gary was somewhat of a “globe trotter” and made great use of his time enjoying the freedom to travel. He also enjoyed sailing, the great outdoors, and rving when the opportunity presented itself.
A Celebration of Life will be held in his honour at 1:00 pm on Saturday, October 5th, 2019 in the Arbutus Room in the Parksville Community Center, 132 Jensen Avenue East in Parksville. In lieu of flowers those wishing to honour his memory may do so by making a donation in his name to the North Island Wildlife Recovery Center (NIWRC) or District 69 Society of Organized Services (SOS).
Nos plus sincères sympathies à la famille et aux amis de Gary TG STATHAM..
