Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Garry. I worked with him for many years at the Manitoba Legislative Assembly, and he was always a very fine gentleman. He was very professional, and treated everyone with respect and displayed a quiet dignity while he performed his duties. He was also very kind in remembering staff in the Clerk's Office with his delicious tomatoes during the gardening season. I extend my sincere sympathies to Ollie and the family. I am so sorry for your loss. - Posted by: Patricia Chaychuk (coworker from the Manitoba Legislative Assembly) on: Dec 28, 2016
