BAREI, Gary Michael -
February 11, 1957 – May 15, 2020
It is with deeply saddened hearts that we announce the unexpected passing of Gary, with his wife by his side at home in Guelph, Ontario.
Beloved husband for 37 years to Linda (née Smith). Loving father of Andrea and Patrick Spencer, and Steven Barei. Proud and adoring grandpa of Owen, Kayla, Maxwell, and Tiffany Spencer. Cherished son of Carlo and Mary Barei. Dearest brother of Diane and Ken Cunningham, and David Barei. Dear brother-in-law of Norman Smith and Diane, Randy and late Carol Smith, William Smith, Tom and Fran Smith, and Jim and Becki Smith. He will be deeply missed by aunts, nieces, nephews, family and friends in Canada, the USA, and Italy.
Always proud of his Windsor roots, Gary grew up with a passion for scientific thought and athletics and attended both the University of Windsor and the University of Toronto. He will be fondly remembered for his gregarious determination, quick wit, compassion for others, and deep love for his family.
According to Gary’s wishes, cremation and interment will be private, but he would be delighted if you held his memory close to your heart.
