Gary Trimmer Obituary

In Loving Memory of
Gary Glen Trimmer
February 7, 1940 - December 31, 2023

Gary Trimmer, 83, of Little Current, died surrounded by family on December 31, 2023.
Gary was a proud Haweater since his birth here February 7th, 1940.
Not one to stray far from Manitoulin Island, Gary toured around the world for a few years as a young man in the Navy. He returned to become a local entrepreneur, fire chief and volunteer in many organizations over the course of his life.

Gary always lent a helping hand, as well as random items from his shop to more people than we can count!  As an avid hunter, ice-fisher, pilot and collector of fun cars, this Manitoulin Man of Mystery was a strong contributor to the community and has impacted many lives on the Island and beyond. Gary will be sadly missed by all of his friends and family.

Gary is survived by his wife Julie Trimmer,
sons Scott and Dana Jack (Tina),
stepchildren Mike and Kim (Kevin),
grandchildren Elizabeth and Ryan,
step grandchildren Trisha and Alicia,
sister Mary, brother Dale (Maureen) and sister-in-law Helen.

He is predeceased by parents Jack and Mary Trimmer, brothers Bill, George and Roger Corbiere.
