Obituary of Gary Twerdohlib

 

Passed away after a brief illness at Sunnybrook Hospital on April 2, 2022 in his 77th year with both his daughters by his side. Loving father of Jennifer Fletcher (Kevin) and Leanne Bobee (Jay). Adoring pupa of Sophie and Griffin. Gary is survived by his life partner Anne Vernon and his dog Tyson. Predeceased by his parents John and Irene Twerdohlib.

Gary was born and raised in Port Colborne where he lived all his life. He worked at Thurston Machine as a machinist for his entire career. He grew up playing baseball with his lifelong friends and played golf since he was a young teenager. Gary even had the opportunity to caddy at the Canadian Open at Cherry Hill Golf Club.

Gary will be missed by his many close friends who nicknamed him “Turtle”, whom he regarded as family.  These friends provided consistent support throughout his whole life.

His most treasured moments were spent with his daughters, son in laws and grandchildren, who brought him so much joy, love and happiness.
