February 2, 1943 – March 7, 2022
It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we announce the passing of Gary Joseph Schiller at his home near Falkland, BC with his family close by.
He is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Marjorie, and his three sons: Kevin (Nicole) of Nakusp, Blair (Tracey) of Revelstoke and Travis (Codie) of Revelstoke. Three granddaughters: Courtney (Matt Ormel) of Lumby, Danica of Revelstoke and Brooklyn of Nakusp and Surrey; two great-grandsons: Hunter and Jax Keates of Revelstoke. Also survived by his Schiller siblings: Carolyn of Kamloops, Marion Millar of Princeton, Linda Blanchette of Port Coquitlam, Faye (Mike Graw) of Kamloops, Gilbert of Kamloops, Wayne of Princeton and Richard (Terri) of Calgary; numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Predeceased by his parents Joseph and Yvonne (Larocque) Schiller.
He will always be remembered for his strength – his courage – his love for his family – his strong work ethic – his love of animals – and his soft heart especially when it came to his granddaughters and great grandsons.
Thank you to the doctors, nurses and staff of the BC Cancer Clinic in Kelowna and the Vernon Jubilee Hospital. Some things are meant to be – some are not. A very special thank you to Dr. A. Heunis of Salmon Arm, BC for his compassionate loving care of Gary over the past 10 years.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Fund. A private family gathering will be held at a later date.
Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at www.MyAlternatives.ca.
