Gary peacefully passed away at Trillium Lodge Hospice in Parksville, BC, on December 19th 2017.

He was born in Salford, England and raised in Kitimat BC and from there had a varied career including framer, draftsman, plan checker and finally building inspector for the Regional District of Nanaimo.

Gary had a passion for the outdoors. He loved camping, canoeing, fly fishing, and exploring as many wild places as possible. He shared his adventurous spirit with his family and everyone he met. Gary was a talented wood worker and carver, a talent he inherited from his father. He made beautiful pieces and shared them widely.

Gary impressed everyone who knew him for his fortitude, patience and goodwill as a twenty-year survivor of multiple myeloma. The family extends a special thanks to Dr. Steve Nantel, and the many other compassionate caregivers who supported him through this illness.

Sincerely
Ian Hood (son), posted on Behalf of Gary Hood

Sorry to hear of your loss Ian. Pity I never spoke to your Dad as it looks like we had a few things in common. My Dad was from Manchester, and my wife grew up in Kitimat.

I’m so sorry for your loss. My sister passed away from multiple myeloma so I feel a bit closer to your loss. Sincere condolences.

My condolences, also. I lost my father at the relatively young age of 57 back in 1975. I still think of him often. The biggest shock was that he was fine and active that day, but died at night unexpectedly.
