Garry LaVallee

On March 11 Kingston lost a true sportsman when Garry Lavallee passed away. Garry was the “everyman” that you play sports with. Talking to people who played with and against him, he was a good teammate, a strong competitor and, most importantly, he made you laugh. He was a good friend of our league founder Don Petersen, and was also a cherished husband, father and grandfather. At his celebration of life this week, Garry’s family decided that donations in his memory should come to our basketball league, so that the donations could be used to help support youth sports. We are grateful to Garry’s wife Tish for believing in what we do for children in the community, and to Ron Earl and his wife Brenda for looking after the collection at the celebration of Garry’s life. Our sincere sympathy to Garry’s daughters Tracie and Laurie, and to his grandchildren Noah, Lynus, Esmee, Henry and Zachary. Garry will continue to make an impact in the community through this donation and in the memories that those who knew him share together.
