RIDEOUT, Garry H.

RIDEOUT, Garry H. – At the Charlotte County Hospital on August 25, 2021, Garry H. Rideout’s courageous battle with cancer came to an end.

  Garry was born on April 11, 1944, son of the late Marvin and Mary Rideout of Old Ridge. He married the love of his life, Elizabeth “Betty” Ann (Newman), on September. 4, 1965, and together they raised their four children at their home on Happy Valley Rd.

  Garry was an endlessly patient man with a boisterous laugh, and a tremendous love for his family. He was trained as a mechanic and worked as a “fixer” of many things. He loved farming (hugging his cows), watching wrestling, teasing the grandkids (mustard sandwiches, anyone?), and anything sweet.

  In addition to his wife, Betty, he is survived by sons Bryan (Jody) of Old Ridge, Bradley (Laura) of Fredericton, daughters Monica (David) Wood of Dieppe and Melissa (Shaun) Martinson of Fredericton. He leaves behind eight grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. Also survived by sisters Carol (Lenard) Lacombe of Saint John, Helen (Wilfred) Morrison of St. Stephen, brother John (Mary) of Burton, several nieces and nephews.

  A graveside service will be held at a later date.

  Donations, if desired, can be made to the Charlotte County Hospital Foundation or the Charlotte County Cancer Society. Condolences may be sent to the family online at www.mehanfuneralhome.ca
