May 24, 1964 ~ December 9, 2017
With heavy hearts, the family announces the sudden passing of their son, brother and uncle Gary Drebit on Saturday, December 9, 2017.
Gary is survived by his mother Mary, sisters Sharon (John), Rosilyn (Bruce) and Donna, nephews Greg (Vanessa), Matthew (Kyla), Bryan, Jamie (Candice) and Adam, great nephews and nieces Connor, Winter, Mia, Logan and Taylor, as well as aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends. He was predeceased by his father Walter in 1978.
Gary worked at Eatons, Staples and currently was employed with the Province of Manitoba. He adored his dogs Lady, Tokkie and Flash, and loved all animals of any kind. Gary enjoyed planting flowers, watching movies, reading, curling and decorating the yard for Christmas.
Gary loved meeting new people and always had to shake their hands. He was great at remembering peoples faces and names, and always took the time to chat.
We would like to thank the staff at the Health Sciences Centre, SICU for the great care they gave Gary.
A “Come and Go – Share a Story of Gary” will be held on Saturday, December 16 at the Rennie Hall from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Gary’s memory may be made to the Winnipeg Humane Society, 45 Hurst Way, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3T 0R3.
