Garry Scott Proudfoot January 15, 1945 - January 4, 2013
Garry's mortal journey came to a peaceful conclusion at home in Palm Desert with family, friends and dogs nearby. His life ended as he always lived it, with grace, courage and dignity.
''To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one's self; to leave the world a bit better; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived-this is to have succeeded.'
Garry succeeded admirably.
Garry is dearly loved and will be deeply missed by his loving wife Joan, his mother Judy, sisters Colleen and Sharee (Gerry), brother Jeff (Charmaine), his nieces and nephews, and of course, his beloved pups.
A celebration of Garry's life will be held on January 16th, 2013 at Capilano Golf and Country Club, 420 Southborough Drive, West Vancouver, at beer o'clock (3 p.m.). In lieu of flowers, donations to the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation or Canuck place would be gratefully accepted.
