Gary Fortier passed away unexpectedly on July 5th of 2014 in Spokane WA with his family by his side. He is survived by his wife Sara, son Craig, daughter in law (Lisa), and three grandchildren, as well as brothers Tab and Andre and their families.

Gary was born on October 13th 1940, and raised in Los Angeles CA. He joined the armed services becoming a paratrooper in the 101st Airborne Division. He spent over 40 years in the health care industry as a Surgical Technologist, most of which took place in Culver City and Auburn CA. He was a private pilot, a scout leader, a joke teller, and a man of compassion who always made those around him smile. He retired to Spokane in 2010 and became a local sports enthusiast, and loved his days as a full time "Papa."
There will be a viewing on July 14th from 5-7pm at Chapel of the Hills, and graveside services at the New Auburn Cemetery on July 15th at 1pm. Arrangements under the direction of Chapel of the Hills, Auburn, CA.
