WINDSOR, Gary Lee (Class of 1967)

garywindsorAt home, surrounded by family, Gary Lee Windsor, of Kanata, Ontario, crested the final knoll, slid softly down the last pitch, and quietly removed his skis on Sunday, February 23, 2020. Born in Montreal, Quebec on March 1, 1950, Gary was predeceased by loving parents Irene and Charles “Chick” Windsor, and sister Leigh Windsor. He is survived by his dear wife Carol Windsor; daughters Michelle (Ken) McComas and Nicole (Mike) Windsor; and his cherished grandchildren Ethan, Eli, and Isla. Gary’s infectious spirit will never be forgotten. He cared deeply for his family and friends and will be remembered for his ability to find happiness in the simple joys of life – exercise, snow, and exercising in the snow. A very special thank you to Dr. K. Spacek and the palliative care team at the Bayshore/ Champlain health network, the Ruddy Shenkman Hospice, all the day/night shift nurses, and the OMS staff. We are truly grateful for your amazing help for Gary. A funeral service is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, March 3, at Glen Cairn United Church, 140 Abbeyhill Dr, Kanata, Ontario, reception to follow immediately. Should friends desire, contributions may be sent to the organization of their choosing.
