COOMBES, Gareth Aled May 18th, 1989 - September 15th, 2012 Taken tragically from us in London, ON at the young age of 23 years. Gareth was born in Winnipeg, MB and moved to Victoria, BC at an early age. He was in his final year at the Richard Ivey School of Business and had recently returned from a four month adventure in Africa. He packed in a lot of living during his short life, whether it be travelling the world, climbing volcanoes, sky diving, or swimming with the sharks. Gareth's to-do list was like everyone else's bucket list. Gareth had many good friends. Each relationship was important to him and each "best" friend held a special place in his life. His mother Vanessa predeceased him on December 18, 2005, and her nurturing and love made him the incredible man he became. Those of us who are left to mourn his loss can hopefully take comfort in remembering the awesome Gareth hugs, his big, toothy grin and all the love and support he gave so willingly. Look up into that bright night sky and when you see those twinkling stars, it will be Gareth and Vanessa watching over us, his friends. Come share memories, tears, laughter and hugs on Friday, September 28th, 2012 at 3:00p.m. at Glendale Gardens, 505 Quayle Road, Victoria, BC. In Gareth's memory, donations can be made to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Victoria.
