GAMMON, (Roland) Gary | Obituary


GAMMON, (Roland) Gary – passed away on Friday August 12, 2022 at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta, at the age of 59, three weeks before his 60th birthday (September 7). He passed away peacefully with his beloved wife by his side. Gary was born in Pictou, Nova Scotia to father Jack Charles Gammon and mother Elizabeth Mary (Barnard) Gammon. Gary was the second youngest of 5 children; Russel, Doug (Isabel), Gayle (David) and his deceased sister Janice as well as several nieces and nephews. Gary is survived by his devoted wife of 37 years, Sherri-Lynn McNutt, his eldest son Andrew McNutt and their children together; his son Jack and his daughter Kimberly. Gary was a heavy equipment operator and automotive enthusiast. He’s had many classic cars over the years and was always fixing the neighborhood guys’ vehicles. He loved snowmobiling with his longtime friend, Mike Cross, and all the guys that went together. Restoring cars and selling them, boating with his family and car shows were what he loved the most. He was working on his last project car, a 1975 Oldsmobile Cutlass, which he was able to take to his last car show recently with his daughter Kimberly. Gary was a cancer survivor and spent the last years of his life fighting to get better so he could move home for his 60th birthday and enjoy his days near family and friends in Nova Scotia with his Sherri wife. Anyone who knew him would tell you that he was a willful and stubborn man who would fight to the end to survive. The family would like to express their deepest gratitude to the wonderful staff in the intensive care unit at the Royal Alexandra Hospital for doing everything they could to save him and to put him at ease at the end. A celebration of his life will be held at Lake Miquelon for his family and close friends and a subsequent celebration will be held in Nova Scotia. He will be greatly missed by his family and so many others who knew and loved him. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in Roland’s name to the charity of his choice.
