It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of our youngest brother, Leonard 'Gary' Zimmerman of Estevan, Saskatchewan, in Red Deer, Alberta, on Wednesday, January 11, 2023, at the age of 58 years.
Gary passed away peacefully in his sleep from complications from a prior surgery received in 2018. Gary enjoyed the simpler things in life. A good conversation, a good story, a table full of family and friends, and time to himself for the sports he loved. Motorcycling, skateboarding, hockey, football, golf, and most importantly, fishing. He truly loved fishing. Gary will be lovingly remembered by his siblings, Bary (Jeannete), Gregory, Linette (Gerald) Scatterty, and Dominick (Colette), as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and friends.
A heartfelt thank you to his many friends for their friendship, care, consideration, and attention provided to our brother. Gary was predeceased by both of his parents, Lin and Emily, and his brothers, Brian and William.
A Celebration of Gary's Life and scattering of ashes will be held at the Beaver Lake Recreational Area, located 95 km southwest of Red Deer in the early summer of 2023.
