Gary was born May 1, 1942 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He joined the Navy at the young age of 19. It was while serving the Navy that he met Douglas Charles Cavill. They would become the best of friends…. brothers for life.
It was through their friendship that Gary would meet his future wife, Douglas’s sister, Helen Gail Cavill. They met in 1967 and wed a short time later in 1968.
