VIDEN, Garry

It is with great sorrow we announce that Garry Viden passed away on December 13, 2018 at the early age of 71 years in a tragic accident. Garry was born in Meadow Lake, SK to Harold and Florence (Conlan) Viden and lived in Dore Lake for most of his formative years with his parents and his sister Darlene (Gary) Jordan. Garry took his schooling through correspondence while living in Dore Lake and then moved to his grandparents in Meadow Lake in grade 10 to finish high school there. Garry then moved to Toronto for 2 years to go to DeVry University to get a degree in Electronics Engineering Technology. Garry was hired by IBM right out of school and spent 33 years with them until taking an early retirement. Retirement for Garry meant that he could spend more time with Rose on building a business through Melaleuca, dabble in real estate, raise money for Team Diabetes, training for marathons, travelling, sitting on the board for many different organizations, and being a part of the Knights of Columbus among many other things. Garry will be lovingly missed by his wife of 47 years, Rosemarie (Fiolleau), his children Stephanie (Kevin) and Lonny (Heather) and his sister Darlene (Gary) Jordan. Garry will be fondly remembered for his adventurous and mischievous spirit by his grandchildren Morgan, Mason, Lukas, Ty, Zoe, Reid and Quinn, as well as great-grandchildren Trinity, Trevin and Ben. He was also loved by numerous extended family and friends. Garry was known by many for always having a kind word, an infectious smile and a warm hand shake. He gave the best hugs to those who knew him well and would also lend a helping hand to anyone that was in need. Garry was a fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Calgary Flames, Toronto Blue Jays, Saskatchewan Roughriders, Saskatchewan Rush and would often be spotted wearing his many jerseys for his favourite teams. The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 23, 2019 at St. Anne’s Roman Catholic Church (217 Lenore Dr.) in Saskatoon, followed by gathering in the hall and then a Committal at the Columbarium at St. John’s. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Meewasin Valley Authority in Garry Viden’s name. Arrangements in care of John Schachtel – Mourning Glory Funeral Services (306) 978-5200.
