Garry Wayne Law
(July 2, 1954 - April 4, 2019)
Garry Wayne Law of Round Hill, Alberta, passed away on Thursday, April 4, 2019 at the age of 64 years.
Garry, an amazing husband; loving step-father and grandfather; caring brother; fun-loving uncle and loyal friend to many, was sadly taken with his loving wife by his side. Although his battle with cancer was short, he fought with courage and dignity and was selfless to the very end. Always worrying about others and especially Marion.
Garry was born July 2nd, 1954 in Tofield, Alberta to Ted and Evelyn Law. He was the youngest of five children and grew up in the Round Hill area. After graduating from Grade 12, he moved to Edmonton with his buddies to get a taste of the big city life – then off to Williams Lake, BC where he spent a number of years in the logging industry and helping his brother in construction. After a logging accident, his travels brought him back to Round Hill where he created his homestead. There he developed his many talents from gardening, caring for the many birds, canning, woodworking, and landscaping his yard. Garry had a love of many sports and Nascar; but sitting around a campfire with his many friends and family, sharing lots of laughs, good music, and a beverage here and there, was his all-time favorite.
He worked at Shaw Pipe for the last 28 years, where numerous friendships were made, better known as the “Shaw Pipe Family”.
In the spring of 2000, he locked eyes with a blue-eyed lady named Marion. After that first kiss, in which Garry was so thankful that was over with, their relationship blossomed into a beautiful love story. They were married October 4th, 2002. Their adventures together were fun-loving and shared by many; leaving them all with great memories, laughter and love in their hearts.
He will be forever in the hearts of his wife Marion Fowler-Law; step-son Bradley Willetts (Chelsi Dickhout) of Round Hill; grandchildren Lochlan Willetts and Zoey Willetts; special relationship with Wayne (Mel) Parkinson and their children Austin, Masen and Shaye; siblings Bob (Marion) Law of Round Hill, and Loretta (Joe) Petryshen of Burns Lake; brothers-in-law Tom (Dana) Fowler of Leduc, Kirk Fowler of Grande Prairie, and Albert Petryshen of Camrose; sisters-in-law Peggy (Murray) Lovell of Victoria, BC, and Wanda Law of Bruce; numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and his incredible circle of friends, as well as his baby girl pup Willow.
Garry was predeceased by his parents Ted and Evelyn; mother and father-in-law Tommy and Merida; sister Olive Petryshen; and brother Stewart Law.
A Funeral Service was held at 11:00 a.m., Friday, April 12, 2019 from the CityLights Church (4920 48 Street Camrose) with Rev. Brian Hunter officiating. Inurnment has taken place in Bosman's Memorial Garden, Round Hill.
