Gary Donahue
April 9, 1944 - April 6, 2016
Gary Donahue was born Easter Sunday, April 9, 1944 to Ken and Mabel Donahue. He attended Alanbank School and Tweedyside dances. He discovered his love for the saxophone there. He left school to farm with his Dad.
As a child, he loved watching airplanes fly over the farm. It became his dream to fly. He would receive his pilot's licenses, join Biggar Flying Club, and crop spray. He tried gyrocopters, parasailing, and hot air ballooning. He took many people for memorable rides. Some close calls increased his faith in God. He built a ferris wheel, zipline, trampolines and go-carts. He was the oldest kid at heart. He made a lot of people happy young and old.
He married Frances Tebb. They had three children, Connie, Matt and Tanya.
He contracted at Prairie Malt, MicroGro Greenhouse, and Kinley bridge. He farmed with his daughter, Tanya. With his ingenuity, he could build and fix anything. He enjoyed playing music at church, New Horizons, Health Centre, parades and Danceland.
While in hospital, he kept busy making blueprints for his lighthouse. It is to be erected at the farm where he is buried. He showed amazing strength. He was looking forward to going home to Heaven. He had lived a full life. He realized the most important decision he ever made was accepting Jesus as his personal Lord and Saviour. That made all the difference. He was gifted, talented, and definitely one of a kind. He will be greatly missed.
Gary is survived by wife, Frances; children, Connie, Matt and Tanya; grandchildren, Kennedy, Jonathan, Abigail and Caledonia; siblings, Norma, Marie, Glenna and Frank. He was predeceased by his parents, Ken and Mabel Donahue; sisters, Rita (Bill) Clark, Bonita Hanlon; and grandson, Jacob Theriault.
