It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the untimely passing of Gary Michael Leasak on Friday, January 12th, 2024, in Calgary, Alberta, at the age of 56. Born in Calgary on January 26, 1967. Gary touched the lives of many with his tenacious spirit, passion for sports, and love for his large family.
Gary's early years were marked by his education in the Millarville, Priddis, and Okotoks areas. From a young age, he showcased a remarkable talent and love for hockey, attending a hockey school in Saskatchewan where he quickly became recognized as one of the best players.
Gary is survived by his loving mother Linda Gaudry, his father Robert Leasak, and stepmother Noreen Leasak. He is also survived by his siblings: brother Kris Leasak, sister Danielle Spencer, stepsister Nichole Barwise, and step-brother Kyle Kapp. Gary will be dearly missed by his brothers-in-law Brett Spencer, and Dave Barwise; sisters-in-law, Tina Leasak, and Jessa Kapp; his nieces, Katalina, and Ruby; and nephews Milo, Finn, Lincoln, Montey, Logan, and Liam, will carry his memory in their hearts.
Gary's untimely departure leaves a void in the lives of those who knew him. His legacy lives on in the memories of the times shared and the indomitable spirit he brought to every moment. May he rest in peace, and may his memory continue to inspire the same passion and love for life that he exuded.
A Celebration of Gary's life will be held at a later date where friends and family can come together to remember the remarkable person he was and find solace in each other's company.
“Death leaves a heartache no one can heal; Love leaves a memory no one can steal. Gone yet not forgotten, although we are apart, Your spirit lives within me, Forever in my heart.” –Robert Leasak
