1950 ~ 2012
It is with great love and sadness that we announce the passing of our father, brother, grandfather and friend, Garry Kirstiuk at the age of 62 years. He was predeceased by his much loved wife, Sharon, and his parents Kris and Peggy. He is survived by his 3 children Daniel, Alexandra (Kevin Dueck) and Jonathan (Courtney) and three grandsons: Kona, Kaydan and Ethan. Garry is also survived by his brother Rick, sister Pam, and many cousins, aunts and uncles.
Garry was born on January 10, 1950 in North Vancouver as the first of three children. In 1974, Garry and Sharon moved to Williams Lake to start his career in Dentistry. He soon became very engaged in the community becoming much loved and respected. Garry’s love of God and music saw him involved in church worship at Cariboo Bethel Church, performing with Cariboo Gold Band, and many jazz ensembles. Garry also had a great fondness for the outdoors where he partook in several activities including fishing, hunting, swimming, skiing, and gardening.
Loved by many, Garry was an inspiration for his disciplined approach to life. He served man and God whenever he was in a position to do so, charitably serving others without any recognition needed. Garry demonstrated his generosity by taking each of his children on mission trips with YWAM Mercy Ships. Garry will be missed by all.
A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Saturday, March 24 at 1:30 pm at Cariboo Bethel Church in Williams Lake.
In lieu of flowers, donations to mercyships.ca would be greatly appreciated.
