Peacefully passed away at the Greater Niagara General Hospital on Friday, February 4, 2022, at the age of 69. Loving Father of Brad (Sheena) Pirko and Tyler Pirko (Alysia Sandherr). Proud Grampa of Xayne, Kyana, Alexis and Gavin. He will be remembered by his extended family and friends for being strong-willed, determined, adventurous, often humorous and sarcastic. He will always be loved by his children and grandchildren. Gary was predeceased by his parents Jim and Helen Pirko.

He said, “If ever there is a tomorrow when we’re not together, there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart, I’ll always be with you.” – A.A. Milne
