Obituary

Garry Parmentier

Jan. 17, 1955-Nov. 17,2020

Garry passed away peacefully on November 17, 2020 at the age of 65 with family by his side. Garry was born and raised in Rocky Mountain House.

Garry was predeceased by his father Ellis Parmentier, his mother Mildred Parmentier “Ma”, and his wife Judy Mason.

Garry is survived by Buddy and Mickey (his two sidekicks), daughter Crystal Lowry (Les), grandsons Kesler Morrow and Justis Lowry (Kirsten), his great grand kitty Ariel, and numerous other family members.

Garry worked throughout Alberta and the Territories but for the last 30+ years. He worked at Bouwman Plumbing as a plumber and backhoe operator until his retirement in October 2020. He was a man of many talents such as carpentry, wood carving, food critic, and handyman extraordinaire. Garry enjoyed working on projects with his Grandson Justis and passing on his knowledge. When at work or working around the house, he had quite the vocabulary. He insisted it helped get the job done.

Garry took pride and comfort in his home and enjoyed spending time with friends and family there. Lots of his time was spent outside on his acreage, birdwatching with his two sidekicks “Buddy” and “Mickey” while doing work around the yard. Garry was a dedicated grandfather and hockey fan; he made it to every game. He would never pass up a chance to brag about his grandkid’s talents to family and friends. For years Garry dreamed of owning a Can Am Spyder, this year his dream came true. He had the chance to enjoy it throughout the summer around town and to Nordegg, Alberta. We are pleased to know that he is now at peace and reunited with his wife Judy.

A service will be held for Garry in conjunction with Judy Mason at the Chapel of the Rocky Funeral Home, Rocky Mountain House, Alberta on Friday, August 6, 2021 at 1:00PM. Everyone is welcome.

Memorial donations in Garry’s name may be made to ROAR on Garry’s behalf to carry on his love for animals.

Condolences

Elaine Beach Gusek:

Condolences sent to your family. Such a sad time. I remember meeting him again, 2 summers ago when he was working on the ground work for our house. He come up to me and asked if I knew who he was. It took a little while but then I remembered. We exchanged hugs and we both said it was good to get to know a cousin again. When we were younger, we would go berry picking with him, Rita and his mother Mildred. His mother could pick berries faster than anyone I knew. At that time, they lived in the biggest log house I ever seen. Garry was a good worker and did his job well. I'm sorry I never got to spend more time to get to know him better. He was a wonderful person and will be missed.

Janelle Watson:

The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Darlene Hermary:

So so sorry for your loss

Will never forget your awesome sense of humour, Garry. Sorry you’re gone, Cousin, but glad you’re with Judy again. Condolences to the family from your cousins Michelle, Roy and his family, and me.

Amelia Tetroe (Darcys daughter):

I'm sad to see you go, but I know now you'll be reunited with grandma and Judy, and you were missing them, that we could see. You were always so funny and full of life, and I missed visiting you every year. You were very hard working, and always tried your best for your family. You would give dad advice as the older brother you were, didn't mean he would always listen. Haha, We had tons of great memories together, on your little farm. I hope those memories are carried on through your family. I'll never forget your laugh, or the time we stood outside and watched the meteor shower. You'll be missed greatly, you changed so many hearts, and made so many smiles while you were here <3 ill miss you uncle Garry, rest in peace
