Obituary of Garry Franklin Shantz

Please share a memory of Garry to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
It is with great sadness that we, the family of Garry Shantz, announce his passing at Northern Lights Regional Health Centre in Fort McMurray, Alberta on Friday, August 12, 2022, at the age of 76. Garry was born in Wetaskiwin, Alberta and was raised in Edmonton, AB. He moved to Fort McMurray in 1974 with his wife and children where he became a realtor. Garry loved hockey and baseball and was a charter member of the Fort McMurray Rotary Club. Garry’s favourite place to be was at Canim Lake, British Columbia - especially when the kids would come to visit. Garry is survived by his wife of 55 years, Fran; sons Geoff (Shelley) of Fort McMurray and Brian (Erin Griffin) of San Antonio, Texas; daughter Corry of Fort McMurray; grandsons Trevor (Kelly Townsend) of Fort McMurray, Brandon and Garrett both of San Antonio, Texas; granddaughters Sherianne (Warren Clarke) of Edmonton and Erynn of Fort McMurray; great-granddaughter Rylie of Edmonton; great-grandson Charlie of Edmonton; sisters Floy Tracy, Corinne Lawless and Christine Peters. In keeping with Garry’s wishes, there will be no memorial service. His life will be celebrated by his family at the lake. May he forever be “absolutely unbelievable”. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Local HERO Foundation. The foundation delivers 24/7 emergency helicopter services to Northeastern Alberta:
