June 9, 1957 – January 11, 2020
It is with extreme sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Garry Greschuk on January 11, 2020 at the age of 62. 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, Joseph Greschuk-Schnellert.
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.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 18, 2020 at 10:30 a.m. at Sobering Funeral Chapel, 1035 Park Ave, Beausejour, MB with viewing one hour prior to the service. Cremation and a family interment will be at a later date.Print This Obituary & Condolences
