Gary was predeceased by: his father, John; and brother, Don.

Gary’s way of life was bringing people together; there was no division between friends & family. He simply loved all - except for a few on the ice.

Gary was born in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan and raised on the family farm in Rivercourse, eventually settling in High River and weekending in the Crowsnest Pass. Gary also loved their annual trips to Mexico. Gary loved all sports, especially golfing, skiing, and hockey. He never missed an opportunity to spend an afternoon with the kids on the golf course, the ski hill, or simply sitting down to watch an Oilers game. He was a diehard fan.

In lieu of flowers, Gary’s wishes were to support Haying in the 30's (Cancer support for local families) or the Crowsnest Pass Junior Golf Program. 

To donate to Haying in the 30's  - online at or at McCaw Funeral Service

A Celebration of Life will take place at a later date.

Gary was famous for his one liners… “See you Thursday Gar”
