love always The Ward Family
I have known Garry for 57 years … since he was born. Our families “Mel & Helen & Walt & Mickie Coupland” remained closely connected for many years. Like so many who remain to Celebrate Garry’s journey memories of times past have filled my thoughts. Times of fun, good humor and oh so much laughter!
Garry touched the hearts & lives of so many, The Canadian Giant's heart was larger than his reputation.
Many laughs shared with Garry and his family.
The Robbins home was a hangout for us, this was one place my mom allowed us to stay late.
I can see him right now, back to a memory of his huge grin after one of our pranks on a friend. There are many stories of fun times.
Am not sure if i will be able to make it to the funeral, but am thinking of all of you at this very sad time. Lynda Gordon
