Obituary of Finkbeiner, Gary Edward

Passed away peacefully at Arbour Creek Care in Hamilton, Ontario on October 24, 2021. Gary will be missed by his mother Lois. He will be remembered by his siblings Greg (Kathy), Rick (Judy), and Nancy (George MacDonald). He will be fondly thought of by his nieces and nephews. Gary was predeceased by his father George and is now reunited with him.

Gary was born and raised in Niagara Falls, Ontario. He worked for 5 years in the woodworking industry at Ed Martin Woodwork Shop in Niagara Falls. He learned many skills in this shop. He enjoyed making furniture, refurnishing, and making storage boxes. Gary enjoyed getting his daily triple triple coffee from Tim Hortons and watching action filled movies especially Cinderella Man. Gary's favourite meal was liver and onions just like his father George. He was also extremely athletic. In his highschool years, he played many sports. Some of his favourites were lacrosse, hockey, and baseball. He was a quiet guy. He often enjoyed getting lost in his thoughts as he sipped on a cup of ice water. Gary loved animals, especially Nancy and George’s dogs. He was loved by all who knew him and he will be greatly missed.

As per his wishes cremation has taken place. Arrangements have been entrusted to Essentials Cremation and Burial Services (905-354-2133). A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Memorial donations may be made to the Niagara SPCA. Online condolences may be made on Gary’s Tribute page found at
