Obituary of Gary Kirilenko

August 2, 1947 – October 17, 2020 Gary Kirilenko died tragically in a house fire on October 17, 2020, at the age of 72. Gary was independent, generous, and a man of humour. He believed fiercely in the importance of hard work, excelling in many jobs throughout his life, but he spoke most proudly of his career in sales. Gary loved the mountains of BC, fishing, playing cards, and experimenting with different flavours in his meals. He also loved to play music on many instruments and wrote his own songs. He was the son of William and Mary Kirilenko (Mazoka). Gary is survived by his two daughters (and their families) and his brother and sister (and their families). The family is deeply grateful to the volunteer fire crews who responded to the fire, from Radisson, Borden, Maymont, and Dalmeny. In lieu of a funeral at this time, please consider donating to the Radisson volunteer fire department.
