Gary Yates Canion
Gary Yates Canion entered into rest on December 14, at his home in Western Australia. Son of Leslie & Mae Jean Canion, he was born in Seadrift on August 10, 1937. Gary was a sixth-generation resident of Harris County, descended from pioneers who had come to Texas in 1843.
Survivors include his children Patrick, Margaret, Martha and Andrew, and his sister Charlotte Sontag.
Before his retirement, Gary worked as a legal assistant and in business. Earlier, 1959 - 1979 he had served as a minister in the Episcopal Church, including three years in Australia.
About his own life, Gary had thought it had been an incomparably rare experience as most of his days seemed to him like the bright side of Providence. Gary trusted his identity was bound for a better place than this world. He had faith that one day Paradise will be restored through the love of Jesus Christ.
Gary will be laid to rest in Perth, Australia on January 5, 2021. Messages may be sent to
