GARTH NEVILLE Suddenly, at his residence on June 17, 2005, Garth William Neville passed away in his sleep at the age of 57. Garth was predeceased by his parents, Bill and Ruth (Buddy) Neville. He leaves behind his recently separated wife Cherie and his kids, Ashley, Amber, Mark and April. His one brother Rick, wife Aleta and kids, Shelley, Brent, Ryan and in-laws, August and Doris Roy, Jack and Rita, Roy, Robbie and Gabbie, Marguerite and Marty, Michelle, Carla and Bill and many more nieces and nephews are also left to mourn. Garth was born in Binscarth, MB on January 2, 1948. Growing up in a small town, as a child everyone that knew Garth, knew about his love for sports. One of his greatest loves was baseball. Garth was the star pitcher for the Binscarth Orioles. His team was even given the honour to represent Canada in the Pan Am Games in the early 70's. Soon after Garth moved to Winnipeg where he found one of his other great passions; cars. For over the past 30 years, Garth had spent most of his working life in the car business, where he had met most of his good friends. For the last few years he was employed at Trans American Sales, where he met close friends, Harley Unrah, Amanda Yon, Glenn Goertzen, Peter Plett, Glen Bredin, Verne Malanchuk and John Petrakos. Along with many others, Garth leaves behind beloved friends, Judy Germain, Dennis Kudelski, Wayne Dreilick, Allan Sheppard (Sheppy), Loren Locken, Stewart Obrien, Gord and Darlene Hykaway, the Asham family, and Glen and Iris McDonald. Garth had many friends, too many to list. If you knew Garth you know who you are, and you know he was a great friend to all. He was always out to make everyone laugh, he had a profound sense of humour, which will be missed the most. Garth will be remembered as a great husband, father, and friend and will always be in our hearts. For all that life has given us And all that's left to do, We'll know no greater treasure Than the days we had with you. A celebration of Garth's life will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, June 21 in the chapel of Voyage Funeral Chapel, 220 Hespeler Ave. at Henderson Highway. If friends so desire, donations may be made to Garth's children, Box 56, Group 2, RR1, Anola, MB R0E 0A0. VOYAGE FUNERAL HOME AND CREMATORIUM 220 Hespeler Ave. @ Henderson Hwy. 668-3151
