McKinnon GaryJohn Gary McKinnon

Garry was born on December 16, 1937 in Wellwood, Manitoba.  He died peacefully on January 21, 2018 at age 80 after a brief decline.

Gary grew up on the family farm in Wellwood with his brothers Glen and Ronny.  He was active in baseball and enjoyed curling and golf throughout his life.

Gary was a salesman and retired at 55 to enjoy life with his spouse, Red Schellenberg. They traveled, golfed and enjoyed life together in their retirement community of Carman.

Gary was predeceased by his parents. He will be mourned by Red, Glen and Karen, Ronny and Lynn, Gary and Red’s children Gaylene, Glenn, Gordina and Bob and grandchildren Morgan, Whit, Kyle, Tom and Harley. He was loved and will be missed by many nieces, nephews and friends.

Gary was a pleasure to be with, warm and loving and touched many lives.

When we moved to River Cove Estates, Gary was one of the first new neighbours we met. He was a gentleman in the true sense of the word. He will be missed by many. Our thoughts are with Red, and the family.

When you share a small home town with someone like
Gary, it was always a pleasure to get together and reminisce! And it only took a matter of minutes to begin telling the old stories and reviving the old nicknames.
Gary was a person that was fun to meet and fun to talk to. His unique voice announced his presence before you even set eyes on him. I am saddened to think that I won’t be running into him again. Condolences to all family members.

Glen, Karen & family - so sorry to hear about
the passing of your brother Gary. Whenever we were
in Carman visiting and would run into Gary we would
say oh there is Glen. I am sure he will be missed by
many - cherish all your wonderful memories & trips
you had together.

My deepest sympathy to Red and her entire family at the loss of Gary. I met Gary at the Carman Golf Course and got to know him working on his golf cart. He needed his golf cart to go faster then any other golf cart on the course. Gary always had a smile on his face and I never heard him say a bad word about anyone. He will be deeply missed.

So sorry to hear of Gary’s passing. It was so nice to see Glen at my dad, Paul’s, funeral last September. Thinking of you all at this sad time.
