GLEN BURTON GALLAGHER
Glen Burton Gallagher, born December 25,
1925, passed away at St. Boniface Hospital in
Winnipeg, on June 11, 2008, after several years
of bravely fighting cancer.
Glen is survived by two sons, Larry ( Cairns,
Australia) and Ken ( Bonnyville, AB) and their
wives Barbara and Mary; daughter- in- law Terri;
nine grandchildren, Scott, Erin, Shelley, Jessica,
Kelly, Tim, Glenn, Kaatrina, and Anneke; and
three great- grandchildren, Zachary, Flynn, and
Cooper. He was predeceased by his wife Doris,
father Fred, mother Bertha, sister Dorothy, and
Glen spent most of his childhood in Bradwell,
SK. Growing up, he enjoyed the small- town life,
particularly curling with his father, Fred, and
horse- riding with friends. Shortly after
beginning his career with the CNR, Glen met
Doris, Bradwell’s new schoolteacher, and the
two were married in 1947.
Glen’s work in the 1950’ s as a station agent
took the young family to several small towns in
Saskatchewan, including Glenbush and Rabbit
Lake. In 1961 he was promoted and the family
moved to Saskatoon where he worked as an
operator and dispatcher. Glen's career with the
CNR continued to move forward and in 1970 he
took a promotion to Winnipeg, then on to The
Pas in 1974, and finally to Saskatoon in 1977,
where he was the Chief Superintendent of the
Prairie Region. Glen retired from the CNR in
1980. He then took a position in Vancouver with
the Canadian Transport Commission where he
worked for six years as an Accident
Investigation Officer. In 1987 Glen and Doris
settled in Glenwood Village, a townhouse
community in Surrey, BC. They lived happily
amongst friends at Glenwood until 2005 when
failing health required them to move to
Sturgeon Creek Retirement Residence in
Glen was a “ railroader” through and through,
dedicated to his work with the CN. He was also
dedicated to the CN social life, and “ GBG”, as
many of his railroad pals affectionately knew
him, was always ready for the next get- together
or celebration that he frequently enjoyed with
his many friends. His great sense of humour,
and that Irish twinkle in his eyes, made him a
joyful blessing to friends and family alike. Glen
also had a strong love of horses since childhood,
and some of his happiest years were spent
during his retirement in Surrey, BC, where with
the help of some good friends, he owned and
raced standard- breds at the Cloverdale track.
All who knew Glen were touched by his warmth
and charm, and even his quick Irish temper will
always be remembered with smiles, love, and
laughter. He was a strong, caring father and a
loyal, loving husband. Family and friends will
greatly miss him.
The family would like to thank St. Boniface
Hospital, Palliative Care Unit, for providing
such fine care during Glen's final days. A
family memorial service will be at a later date.
Remembrances may be made to the Canadian
Cancer Society, 193 Sherbrook St., Winnipeg,
MB, R3C 187, in Glen's memory.

TERRANCE JACOB GERYLO
1951 - 2008
Suddenly on Wednesday June 11, Terrance
( Terry) Jacob Gerylo passed away at home with
his daughter by his side.
He is sadly missed by his wife Debbie of 33
years, daughter Reanna " Peanut", and son
Michael " Cowboy". He was predeceased by his
parents, Michael and Jean. Family and friends
were important to Terry and there are so many
that have been devastated by his sudden death.
This includes his brother and sisters: Don,
Marlene ( Ken), Valerie ( Terry), Darlene ( Jim)
and numerous nieces and nephews. He is also
survived by his uncle Peter Gerylo. Terry
visited his uncle on a weekly basis, not out of
duty but out of love. It is evident from the
outpouring of support that the family has
received what a wonderful and kind man he
was. His pets also held a special place in his
heart, Hershey, his constant companion, and
Bailey ( the cat he pretended to hate but which
we secretly saw him petting gently out of the
corner of our eye).
Terry obtained a degree in Business
Administration and worked at numerous banks
and credit unions over the course of his career
as a general manager. Those who have had the
opportunity to experience his cooking know that
he missed his true calling. His appetizers were
artistic creations, he spent a great amount of
time on their presentation ( sometimes one was
reluctant to eat them as they were so carefully
crafted). No one could resist and of course they
were divine. He loved cooking for family and
friends on all occasions and especially looked
forward to every Easter and Christmas in
preparing our traditional Ukrainian dishes. He
was also known for his amazing " lake
breakfasts" which took hours to prepare,
enjoying every minute with friends and family.
Another love of Terry's was his cabin at Big
Whiteshell Lake, which they purchased in 1996.
It quickly became a second home for the family
and many of us have spent time there enjoying
Terry and Debbie's hospitality. The lake is an
important part of Reanna and Michael's family
life and they will never forget the time they
spent there with their Mom and Dad.
Terry also enjoyed travelling ( once he
arrived at the destination), fishing, grouse
hunting and had recently taken up oil painting.
There is too little space to say all that needs
to be said. He was a strong and stoic man with
the biggest heart ever. Always humble, kind and
considerate, that was Terry. And above all,
devoted to his wife and children. How blessed
we were to have him for the time we did.
From Debbie: Terry has been the love of my
life since I was 16. I saw him in the high school
gym and knew I had to make him mine. He also
felt that connection. The phone rang and it was
him. We have been inseparable since. We
belonged together of that there was no doubt,
not even two provinces could keep us apart. We
married and had our kids and we were going to
celebrate our 34th anniversary on October 12.
No one could make me laugh like he did. We
always laughed. I was his princess and we were
the only ones for each other. Forever and Ever,
he will be in my heart. Amen.
A memorial service will be held on Tuesday,
June 17, at 1: 00 p. m. in the Gilbart Funeral
Chapel, Selkirk, MB.
Gilbart Funeral Home, Selkirk in care of

working soul who always favoured the less fortunate.

Born in Schreiersgrun, Germany, Herb came
to Canada in 1953, working as a bricklayer.
After a few years in Winnipeg, Herb and Erika
realized the dream of owning farmland, and
purchased their farm in Fraserwood, Manitoba.
In between acres of garden, cutting hay and
raising cattle, there were trail rides with the
horse club, and trips to the beach in Gimli.
In later years, Herb gently but firmly
refused most help to care for his wife, and
spent almost a decade fulfilling his vow of in
sickness and in health. Recently, he regained a
part of his life once thought lost, when he was
reunited with family in Germany. Between
