Dear Marion and your lovely family...
First I have to tell you that your family has always been in our hearts. Garry was a fantastic pharmacist, mentor and boss. Clint, Dad and myself can all claim Garry was truly one of the best bosses EVER! We loved Fletchers. Everything about it. Fletchers was a huge part of our Weinmaster lives and we are all grateful. Dad would say Garry was a curler he envied, a peer he loved working with and a true friend. Garry’s unselfish willingness to accommodate the family farm schedule was always appreciated. My huge pharmacy collection at home is graced with just a few treasures Garry so proudly gave me. I cherish them and the our Fletcher’s memories. My greatest thanks for you both attending Mom and Dad’s funerals. Meant the world to us and for that we are all thankful. I will certainly miss Garry’s compassion and care for his patients and for his employees. And I loved his spunk! -Michelle

Great sympathies from the Weinmaster fam. May you cherish all the great memories I know your Dad, Grandpa, and Husband shared with you. ❤️❤️❤️

Mrs. Fletcher, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Mr. Fletcher. I send you my deepest condolences. I have many memories of you both, and you were good friends to my parents Pearl and Norman McKeeman. You were so kind to mom after dad passed away. May your memories bring you comfort.

Dear Marion & family, We are so sorry to hear about Garry passing. I was talking with my father Jack Thompson, who curled with Garry on the 1949 School Boys Dominion team & he asked me to express his sincere condolences. Jan & I had the pleasure of spending some time with both you & Garry back in 2012, we both thought of Garry as a true "gentle"man. He will be missed and always in our thoughts.

I met Garry when I joined the Kinsmen Club of Yorkton in 1984, and I immediately appreciated his humour and friendship. He always had a smile, his input was always wise and reasoned, and he personified the word "gentleman". The last time I met Garry was a year ago when the club's Life Members got together and attended a Kinsmen meeting together. We all reminisced together, and I will cherish that evening forever. Garry, rest in peace my friend, you have earned it.

Sincere condolences to Garry's family and friends.

Yours in Kin, Ken Pilon
