Thy life's a miracle. ~ King Lear

English and History teacher at Westhill and Malcom Campbell High Schools, Garry Halpert passed away peacefully at St-Mary's hospital on April 5, 2018, surrounded by his family. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Garry was an optimist who loved life to the fullest. We are convinced his inquisitive mind, creativity and sense of humour, was what kept him on this planet for almost 92 years! Garry was a fan of literature, musical comedies, Italian films and Shakespeare. " You should never leave the house without a Shakespeare in your pocket", he once said. His closest childhood friend Lenny Polster passed away last summer and we are certain both Cleveland boys are in Heaven playing basketball and having a good laugh. We should celebrate Garry. He was not one for melancholy and sadness. A modest get together will take place Saturday, April 14 from 2 p.m to 5 p.m. at Kane & Fetterly 5301 Décarie. Special thanks to the staff at Lev-Tov Residence who cared for him during the last year of his life, especially to Trevlyn. Anyone wanting to make a donation in his name, could donate to St-Mary's hospital foundation : stmaryshospitalfoundation.ca/
