Garry followed in the footsteps of his father as a leader and tutor with the Horsham City Pipe Band, and this included ongoing family involvement with both his children who have also spent many active years in pipe bands. Garry was always willing to share his enthusiasm for drumming, and throughout his life, made a significant contribution to not just the Horsham Pipe Band, but the wider pipe band community, encouraging involvement of young and old. For those who knew Garry, he was always willing to help.
In recognition of his lifelong contribution, Garry received the Peter Clohesy Award for services to highland drumming.
Garry was a stalwart in the Wimmera and will be sadly missed. Pipe Bands Victoria has conveyed its condolences to Garry’s family.
