George Gary Smallwood

May 12, 1940 ~ March 25, 2020 (age 79)


It is with a broken heart that we announce the passing of Gary Smallwood. He was 79. Gary was born in Moose Jaw, SK on May 12, 1940. After a successful business career he retired to Penticton in 1992.

Gary loved to golf and sit outside on a beautiful sunny day, cooking something delicious on the BBQ, a cold drink in hand and entertaining his guests.  He was so proud of his family and loved them dearly; he had a kind and gentle heart, he was honest, hard working and his word was his bond and he truly enjoyed people.  

Gary leaves behind his wife of 53 years, Loretta; his daughter, Teresa (Guy) Martin; granddaughters, Alyssa and Jessica; and brother Vaughan. 

When you think of Gary, please raise a glass or two and honor this wonderful man that I was so lucky to call my Dad. He will be forever loved beyond measure. 

There will be no celebration at this time.
