Peacefully at home in Woodlands on September 24, 2020, we sadly grieve the passing of our husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, Gary John MacFarlane.
He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Jackie; his children, Chris, Andrew, Maryann (Edgar), Leslie, Marcy (Howard) and Fawn (James); his brothers, Wayne (Miriam), Glen (Sophie), Gerald (Patti); and sister Melissa (Trever); sisters-in-law, Denyse and Karen (David); many nieces and nephews across Canada, U.S.A. and Mexico; grandchildren, Roslynn, Emilia, Logan, Judith, Ruby, Edgar, Lance, Benjamin, Johnathan, Natalie, Jack, JaeLynn, and Abby; great-grandchildren, Elliott, Jasper, Priscilla, and the many foster children that he considered his own over the years.
He was predeceased by his parents, Sonny and Kay; brothers, John and Warren Marc; cousins, Oscar, Joyce, and Susan; and brother-in-law Bruce and many extended family in Manitoba and Ontario, too numerous to mention by name but never the less special to him.
Gary had many wonderful friends and acquaintances that he thought of fondly amid his multitude of interests. He was the defender and protector of his family that he cherished. His priority in life was his faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. God will have a purpose for a warrior such as he.
No funeral will be held, but a family gathering will be held at a later date. Gary wished to be cremated.

We love you, we miss you,
waiting until we are together again.
