Obituary of Gary Menezes

In Loving Memory of our Beloved Gary

It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear father, papa, brother and friend who fought hard until the end. He lived a life full of adventure, and left us with countless memories that we will cherish forever.


As a father to Michael, Kelly and David, he was always there providing guidance, support, and unconditional love. He was their biggest cheerleader and rock. As a papa to Roman and Madison, he was even more special. He adored his grandchildren and they adored him. They loved being silly together, wrestling and having dance parties. His hugs could make everything better, and his songs would heal any sleepless nights. As a sibling and friend, he was cherished for his big heart, optimism and infectious sense of humour.


In August 2022 he was diagnosed with liver cancer, and he approached his illness with the same courage and determination he had shown throughout his life. Like a warrior. He underwent countless treatments and procedures, always maintaining his courage. Despite many challenges, he remained strong until the very end. On his own terms, he passed away peacefully on March 8, 2023, surrounded by loved ones.


Although he will be deeply missed, his legacy of strength, courage and generosity will live on through his family and friends, and his memory will continue to inspire us all.

Rest in peace, warrior. You fought a brave battle and now it's time to rest.
