Condolences & Memories (10 entries)

  • I always found Father Gary's sermons to the point. They were always inspiring!!! He always used actual people as examples for his message. Once he left Holy Cross I unsuccessfully tried to find where he was now saying mass. I have missed him greatly. I just found out this moment that he had passed. He will always be missed...😞 - Posted by: Jeannine Buchannon (He was my Saturday evening mass priest at Holy Rosary for many years and then at Holy Cross.) on: Apr 05, 2021

  • My deepest sympathy to Father Killens family I met Father Killen in the summer of 1973 He was indeed a good friend and mentor. RIP - Posted by: david fenster (friend) on: Oct 19, 2020

  • I live in Wheeling Wv (USA) and met Gary through the Manitoba Native Leg Bracers 10 years ago when he got me knee pads for my long leg braces. At that time we started talking on skype and we would talk every night for 10 years. I was shocked when I found out that my friend died a couple 2 weeks ago. I will miss our video calls every night. RIP my friend. - Posted by: J.J. Juber (Friend) on: Nov 22, 2019

  • The Padre will be missed at the club ANAF unit #1. We enjoyed his company, wit and humor. Rest in peace Padre Gary. Cheers in your honor! - Posted by: Judith A. Brown (Member and Executive ANAF John Osborn V.C. unit #1) on: Nov 20, 2019

  • Gary was always a thoughtful person. When we were young spent a lot of family time together. He played the organ at our wedding 56 years ago. When he was at different churches I would go and listen to his services. Thoroughly enjoyed them. He will be missed but I know he will be watching over us all. - Posted by: Marilyn Funk (Cousin) on: Nov 19, 2019

  • We are still in shock that you left us so suddenly. We enjoyed many fond memories with you both in Winnipeg & Arizona. You spoiled us anytime we had a dinner party by setting the table with your own flare. We know you are sitting somewhere enjoying sampling the draft beers. We will miss you our dear friend until we meet again. - Posted by: Ed & Nancy Buchan (Friends ) on: Nov 17, 2019

  • Father Killen’s sermons were exceptional. He spoke from his heart and shared stories that encouraged us to be more Christ-like in our daily living. He was loved by many of us at Holy Rosary and was greatly missed when he left. - Posted by: Merrily Marchessault (I knew Father Killen when he was at Holy Rosary Church.) on: Nov 16, 2019

  • I knew of Gary from the Immaculate Conception on Euclid Street in Winnipeg, that would have been when I went there with my family in the 60s, then I was re-acquainted in the mid 70s, times passes. - Posted by: Jim D'Hont (Friend) on: Nov 16, 2019

  • I was fortunate to have known Father Killen, as a Padre and a friend. He served Canada well in the military, and always took time to help a fellow veteran. Sincere condolences to the family and friends of Gary. R.I.P. Soldier! - Posted by: Paul Dufault (Friend ) on: Nov 16, 2019
