It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear Dad. He passed away on October 8, 2011, at the age of 65 years, following a brief but valiant battle with pancreatic cancer.
Dad will be fondly remembered by all whose lives he touched. Left to mourn are his daughter, Tamara (Derek) Gatringer, and his son, Travis (Kari) Horiachka. He will also be dearly missed by the four little lights in his life: Hailey, Tyson, Lauren, and Landon. Dad was predeceased by his “sweetheart”, Phyllis–semicolon– his parents, Mike and Nancy–semicolon– his nephew, Michael Jr.–semicolon– as well as his beloved brothers, David, Barry, and Mike.
Cremation has taken place. A Memorial Service will be held at 1:00 pm on Saturday, October 15, at Connelly-McKinley Funeral Home, 4820 Meridian Street, Edmonton (the Meridian Street exit can only be accessed when heading South on the Anthony Henday Drive).
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Dad’s memory to the Alberta Cancer Foundation, 11560 – University Avenue, Edmonton, T6G 9Z9, or to a charity of your choice.
