It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Garry Raymond Erb of Listowel on Sunday, May 23, 2021, in his 67th year after a brief battle with cancer. Garry will be welcomed into the hands of his Lord.
Deeply missed by his wife of 45 years, Doris (Elliott) Erb.
He was very proud of each of his children; Trent & Andrea Erb (Fordwich), Tim & Tisha Strickert (Listowel), Tim & Charity Machan (Brussels) and Justin & Rachel Labranche (Ottawa). His grandchildren were his pride and joy, Benjamin and Nicholas; Jaret, Clarissa and Jansen; Brayden, Bella and Kodi; Zoey and Logan.
Garry was very talented in both woodworking and music, which he loved to share his talent and knowledge. He had a very strong faith no matter where he went or who he talked to and shared his faith and walk with God.
Garry will be missed by sister Debra, sisters & brothers-in-law; Ruth & Larry Kennedy (Kitchener), Shirley & Darrell Henderson (Maryhill), Steve & Donna Elliott (Hollen), Tom & Rose Reed (Kitchener), Lynn Elliott (Moorefield), as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces & nephews.
Garry was predeceased by his parents, Rev. Raymond & Eleanor Erb, his in-laws, Gordon & Pearl Elliott, brother-in-law Stan Elliott and nephew Marcus Erb.
The family would like to thank friends, family and neighbours for their prayers and support during this difficult time. We cannot express enough how thankful we also are for the dedication of Dr. Edmonds, nurses and PSW’s from Care Partners for the care and support they gave to Garry and the family.
At Garry’s request cremation arrangements entrusted, with confidence, to the Listowel Community Family Funeral Home. Due to Covid-19 a private family graveside gathering will be held at Fairview Cemetery and a Celebration of Life service at a later date.
Memorial donations to Listowel Memorial Hospital, 255 Elizabeth St. E., Listowel N4W 2P5 or Youth for Christ/Youth Unlimited North Perth, 280 Wallace Ave. S., Listowel N4W 1Y2 would be appreciated.
