It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Gary Fletcher Wilson, on August 11, 2019 at the St Boniface Hospital, at the age of 83 years.
Gary was born in Vancouver, British Columbia to his parents Otis Milford Wilson and Olive Mathia Worth. He joined the military at a very young age. His service in the Canadian Forces took him all over the world. It was during this time he met his wife Annette. Shortly after getting married, Annette and Gary began a family.
After having four sons Kim, Gary, Ron and Vernon, Gary left the Canadian Forces and moved to Gilliam, Manitoba with his family. Gary started a new career with Manitoba Hydro and spent the first few years with them in the northern part of the province. This career saw him and his family move to the town of Great Falls in southern Manitoba. Gary and his family spent many years there and made numerous friends. Gary finished off his career with Manitoba Hydro in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Gary will be dearly missed by his loving wife, his sons and all the family. Gary has a very large extended family throughout Canada. Gary is survived by his wife, Annette of 58 years. He is also survived by his four sons Kim, Gary, Ron and Vernon; his grandson Gary Jr and family and his great-grandson Caleb.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday September 1, 2019 at 1pm, Carriage House North, 535 Leila Avenue, Winnipeg, MB
