July 11, 1954 - February 23, 2017
William ‘GARY’ Stinchcombe
Peacefully in his home in London on Thursday February 23, 2017, in his 63rd year, Gary left us.
He leaves behind his wife and life partner, Donna Muller; their wonderful daughters Nikkie (Nathan), and Melissa; close brother Wayne (Sandra). Predeceased by his parents Jack (1981) and Ruth (2009). Affectionately remembered by his parents in law Theresa and Frank. A special uncle to Krista, Andrew, Cameron, Raymond, Logan, Conner, Jessica, Steph, and Kimberly. Missed by brothers in law Chris (Christine), Rob (Cathy), Tim (Michelle), and sister in law Karen (Marc).
He and Donna shared a 35 plus year love story through which they shared the challenges and many blessings of their life together.
His home and generosity were open to family and others with a special place for his friends Billy Love and Lawrence Ambrose.
Gary took great joy and pride in the talents that his daughters displayed, Nikkie in graphic design and Melissa with make-up artistry.
A lifelong sports fan, he was rewarded with a Boston Bruins Stanley Cup in 2011 and more recently a stunning 2017 Super Bowl victory by the New England Patriots, from which he pocketed the proceeds of numerous wagers.
Two family pet dogs, Chloe and Cheeko will miss his affection.
Gary’s wishes were not for flowers, but rather donations to the London Humane Society.
After a beloved and successful career as an elevator mechanic Gary makes a final ride, we know it’s upward.
