Gary Ernest Killeen
September 4, 1947-June 25, 2018
Gary was the first born to Ernest and Berenece Killeen in New Westminster, followed by his sister Janis. He was predeceased by his wife Esther and Son Naathanael. He was survived by his many children Corinna, Coventry, James, David, Winnie, Crystal, Grant and Joseph. Gary spent his last years accompanied by his girlfriend Carol. He had many different careers over the years including Police Officer, Taxi Driver, Handy Dart Operator and most recently, Longshoreman. A big passion of Gary’s was music. He tried his hand at a few instruments, but his favourite by far was the guitar. He played along with the likes of Leonard Cohen, Johnny Cash, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, to name a few. Gary loved being outdoors. That included day time walks at the dyke near his home and watching the stars at night. He lived most of his life in the lower mainland. Maple Ridge being his last place of residence.
He was loved by many and will be greatly missed.
