Gary Milton Holowchuk


It is with infinite sadness that we announce the passing of Gary Holowchuk of Leduc AB (born in Pinawa MB). Gary (age 67) will be remembered by his loving wife Gina, Son Cory (Tanya); Daughter Jane (Jason); Granddaughter Molly; his Sister Sue (Rick). Gary was pre-deceased by his father Milton and Mother Mildred.

Being that Gary was a consummate outdoorsman, the family will be celebrating his life amongst the beauty of Ram River where Gary had many great adventures.

In lieu of flowers the family ask that a donation be made to the Canadian Cancer Society (Alberta/NWT Division, 200-325 Manning Rd. NE, Calgary, AB T2E 9Z9).

My deepest conoldences to a friend I’ve worked with for over 30 years and who was my business partner. It was a great friendship with no animosity.
The people who worked for him loved him.
A big farewell.

Valorie De Rocco

Our deepest sympathy to Gina, Cory, Jane and family. Gary was my best friend for many years. We spent years together hunting, fishing, motor crossing and riding horses up the Ram River. I took this photo of Gary during a successful hunting trip in Cadomin, Alberta. The past two years Gary dropped in every two weeks to see how Valorie (my wife) was coping with her journey of breast cancer. Gary so loved Valorie’s cherry buns.
Gary, we miss dearly but glad you suffer no more.
It’s not goodbye, but till we meet again.
