It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Garry Heasman on April 14, 2021 at the age of 77.
Garry was predeceased by his father Ted Heasman, mother Marion, brothers Roger and Clive and sister Diane.
Garry was born in Sussex England and moved to Creston in 1948 with his family to help their Granddad Fred Ash, a pioneer in Creston, on the farm.
In 1968 the family moved to New Zealand in search of work but Garry returned to his beloved Creston as an adult to raise his family.
Garry became well known in Creston for his brickwork fireplaces and houses around Creston and his years working at Labbats Brewery. In later years Garry enjoyed his morning coffee with his buddies and playing crib with his good friend Robin.
Garry will be missed and fondly remembered by his youngest sibling Cherry Anderson, his daughter Naomi and all his overseas family.
