January 9, 1946 - June 15, 2024

Garry passed away on June 15, 2024 at Tabor Home with his family by his side.

He is now in heaven with Jesus.

Garry was born in Valom, Holland the youngest of 11 to Ben and Barbara Wolters.

The family immigrated to Lethbridge, Alberta in 1950. From there they moved to Duncan, BC where they started a dairy farm.

Garry attended George Bonner school and Cowichan High School. He then moved to the mainland for work and met Sonja at a church youth gathering.

They married in 1970 and raised 3 children, Christine (Koenraad) Beugelink, Douglas (Tiffany) Wolters, & Katherine (Josh) Olson.

He was a fun and caring grandpa to his 11 grandchildren: Yelissa, Tianna, Kiara, Ezra & Aleena Beugelink; Avi, Reed & Josiah Wolters; Maia, Eva & Anya Olson.

Garry worked at Air Pro (Vancouver), Finning (Calgary/Vancouver) and Avenue Machinery (Abbotsford) in sales. He was good at interacting with people and enjoyed his work.

In 2011 Garry retired and together with Sonja travelled abroad. Their 8 month across Canada and U.S.A. RV road-trip was a highlight plus the 4 years of volunteering with World Relief and Sowers' ministries. They were so thankful for God's provision and blessings throughout their lives.

Garry's faith was strong, and he was courageous as he suffered with corticobasal syndrome for 8 years.

God took his faithful servant home & we will miss him but will see him again one day!
