Gary Worton

Worton, Gary Robert

Gary passed away Saturday August 5th, 2017 at Morriston Park Nursing Home at the age of 70 years.  He is predeceased by parents George and Viola (2011). Gary will be sadly missed by his loving sister Pam Ross (David).  He was an amazing artist with a great career and loving fiancée when he was hit by a drunk driver in 1972.  He suffered a severe brain injury and his future was taken from him.  Gary knew many people over the years and will be remembered for his friendliness.  He always said, "Hello" or had a kind word, even if he could not remember anyone's name.  He died from Parkinsons at the end which was advanced by his brain injury.  He forgave the person who hit him, but I never will.  A private family graveside service will be held at Woodlawn Memorial Park. Donations to New Hope Animal Rescue, 4990 Jones Baseline, Guelph N1H 6H8 would be greatly appreciated in lieu of flowers.  Special thanks to the wonderful staff and his friends at Morriston Park.  He loved you all.
