Predeceased by his loving parents, Kenneth and Gladys Burrows. Gary leaves behind his 3 children, Sean Burrows (Tabitha), Shannon Henning (Tim) and Scott Burrows (Julie). He was a proud grandfather to Justin (Meghan), Jessica, Samantha, Gabriel, Morgan and Ben. Dear Nephew of Harold Willoughby (BC). Remembered with love by his long term partner Brenda Porteous and his Porteous family. Uncle Gary will be missed by Amanda and Danielle Porteous, and Sher Porteous and Peter Robb and Parker Robb, all of whom were so good to him. Greatly missed by all his golfing buddies but his stories will live with them forever.
