St. Georges, Gary

It is with heavy and full hearts we announce the sudden passing of Gary St. Georges on Saturday, August 8, 2020 at Health Sciences North Sudbury at the age of 53. Gary was born in Haileybury, ON and lived in Kirkland Lake, ON with his loving mother Pearl St. Georges (Sauriol) (predeceased) and Father Gary Ring (predeceased).   It was after the passing of his father Gary, that his mother Pearl met Guy St. Georges.  Guy became a loving and dedicated father to Gary.  Gary moved to Sudbury, ON in 1981 with his parents and loving siblings, Chantal and Ryan, where he attended Lasalle Secondary School.  In high school he made amazing friends and maintained those friendships throughout his life.  After high school, Gary went on to have many adventures (educational and otherwise…lol). Gary later returned to Sudbury to start a successful flooring and contracting career and business.  Gary would joke about not being the “scholarly” type, but he was extremely intelligent and street smart when it came to business and people.  One of his favourite sayings was “Don’t worry about it…Forget about it!”. Gary was lucky to have met his wife and soul mate Cathy Turcotte ten years ago and together they lived out many adventures and dreams.  They were the perfect match and loved each other unconditionally.  They shared constant laughs and enjoyed the family they had blended together. Gary was a loving father to Curtis, Kristin (Devin), Kelsey, Robin (Tyler) and Joshua.  He recently met Olivia and had hoped to be a part of her life too.  He was a doting grandfather to Aubrie and Comia.  Big brother to Chantal (Murray) and Ryan (Susan).  Son-in-law to William “Bill” and Raymonde Turcotte and brother-in-law to Lorri (Marc), Jamie (Jody), and Daryl (Monica).  Gary was a loving uncle to Trevor, Ashley, and Benny and was also loved by the many nieces and nephews on Cathy’s side of the family.  Gary also held a special place in the heart of his cousin Debbie Walton (Ray), who was more like a sister to him.  He will be missed by all his aunts, uncles, and cousins.  Gary’s sense of humour and infectious “Hyena” laugh could always be heard and was an indication he was around.  Gary lived life large and though on this earth for only 53 years, he left an impact in the lives of everyone he interacted with.  Gary could always be counted on to be the first to help out family and friends and was also the last one standing at all family/friend get-togethers.  He lived a full life, traveling the world and spending lots of time at the family cottage in the West Arm and at their cottage on Manitoulin Island, where he was recently planning to partially retire.   Gary and Cathy enjoyed spending most of their winters in Belize, where they had a property and made many friends.  Gary had many lifelong friends who he kept in close contact with and he will live on in the many memories and funny stories that those who knew him will share.  The world will definitely not be the same without him. There are no service arrangements at this time.  Family and friends will hold a Celebration of Life at a later date.
