GARRY WAYNE GRESCHUK
June 9, 1957 - January 11, 2020
announce the sudden passing of Garry Greschuk on January 11, 2020, at the age of 62 years. He passed peacefully, with family by his side.
Garry will be sadly missed by his son
Steven Greschuk (Chelsea), daughter Shelby (Kyle) Donahue and grandson Connor. He is survived by his siblings, Connie Johnston, Dianne Thompson, Bill (Brenda) Greschuk, Cheryl (Dave) Lisoway, Kim Greschuk (Earl) and Heather Kalauz, as well as many nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by his parents, Bill and Betty Greschuk; brothers-in-law, Bruce Johnston and Tom Thompson; and nephew
Dad was born on June 9, 1957 in Beausejour, which is where he spent his whole life. He started working as an Autobody Mechanic/Painter at Gretsinger Garage a career that spanned over 40 years. Dad's passion was his job and he put pride into every vehicle he ever worked on. Dad loved his time spent with his friends enjoying a drink or two and catching up.
In his younger years, dad enjoyed playing baseball, hunting and snowmobiling. Dad
always had a story to tell about his good old days and he lived life with no regrets.
Dad's greatest love was his children, whom he was so very proud of, and if you knew him, he would make sure to let you know. He was the proudest grandpa of his grandson Connor and his greatest joy came from visits with him. Dad was excitedly awaiting the arrival of another grandchild in a few months. There wasn't a more enjoyable time for dad than
sitting outside with his family telling stories. We could always count on dad to be driving by to check up on us. We know he will
continue to watch over us.
Garry was diagnosed with muscular
dystrophy, but he never let it affect his way of life. It may have won, but he was never beaten.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Garry's memory to Muscular Dystrophy Canada, 40 Eglinton Ave. East, Unit 500,
Toronto, ON M4P 3A2.

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
Sincere sympathy to Garry's immediate family and to his siblings and their families. My connection with the Greschuk family began when his sister Dianne and I began first grade together...and a friendship continued with Connie and Dianne for years.I was welcomed by the Greschuk family as Tom and Dianne's bridesmaid(Garry was a young teen at that time). Years later Garry and his family became our neighbours on Third St S. Later as a substitute teacher I became acquainted with another generation of the Greschuk family. May the good memories all of you shared with Garry over the years help to ease your loss. - Posted by: Karen Hintz (Family friend) on: Jan 20, 2020
Was sorry to hear of Garry's passing. Sincere sympathy to Garry's children, sisters & brother. Remember visiting them at the farm with my parents. If I remember correctly my Dad was Garry's Godfather. Wanted to attend the memorial but due to the road conditions did not was to venture out on the highway. - Posted by: Connie Muth ( School friend of Garry's sisters) on: Jan 19, 2020
Very sad to hear of Garry's passing. Thinking of family during this difficult time. A story I would like to share, in our younger years there was a group of us that hung around together and Garry was always a prankster and looking for a good laugh. One weekend my parents went away to a wedding and left me in charge of the farm. Of course the gang had to come over and stay til Sunday when my parents came home. I had to wake up at 8:00 a.m. to milk the cows, etc. only to find Garry and the boys trying to put a live chicken in the microwave and the morning Free Press all over the Kitchen/Living room floor! Well the chicken was returned back in the chicken barn safely and Garry was nice enough to clean up the paper by using his buddy as a vacuum cleaner, holding is legs up like a wheel barrel race and pushing him all over the kitchen/living room floor with of course the sound effects of a vacuum. The floor was cleaned up by time my parents came home but of course asking what happened to the morning paper? Nope no one seen the paper, and hoping of course they didn't notice it all in the back seat of Garry's car! Just one story I will always remember of Garry and those good times will never be forgotten. Rest in peace Garry. - Posted by: Laureen Fuerst (Friend) on: Jan 15, 2020
