Obituary of Gareth John Reardon
As the dawn wakes with sun rays lifting above the horizon, my heart prepares for the beauty you saw each morning when you woke. Those early hours were often yours as you went to work and I was still sleeping. The happiest moments came during your days off in between when we would plan our adventures and be together as a family. The summer days preceding your absence are still fresh in our minds and hearts. We were able to delight in the things we loved like going to lakes, bike rides, getting ice cream, BBQ’s and catching up with friends + family. My heart is also grateful we were able to go to Australia recently too. I forever hold onto these precious memories and all of our time together throughout the years. Through the years we were blessed with 3 incredible children together. We delighted our hearts in the journey of parenthood through all the ups and downs. We grew, we opened our hearts to a capacity of love we never imagined possible. And most of all we looked forward to our future together; growing older and deeper in love. You were my best friend, someone I could open up to and always lean on. You believed in me, encouraged my passions and made me feel so special. Seeing your heart as a father blessed our family so much. Our sweet children had the most fun, loving and devoted father. I will always admire your heart for God and the foundation of faith for our family. I often travel back to our special date day, not knowing it would also be our last goodbye. That date couldn’t have been more perfect. As we prepared ourselves and dressed to impress, we couldn’t wait to have dinner and spend quality time together. You looked so handsome and all I heard from your lips was how beautiful I looked and how much you loved me. You always cherished me and made me feel so incredibly special. I’ll never forget your smile and giggles as we ate, went shopping and savored the romantic but also cheeky moments as husband and wife. We discussed how God united us together and gave us the coolest love story... an Aussie gal and Canadian guy meeting and marrying 13 years ago. It’s funny how after all these years we still couldn’t believe how we met and often reminisced how our love story unfolded. I’m so heartbroken to do life without you. Words cannot express this feeling of loss and pain. I miss you every hour, minute and second. Time is such a gift and I wish we had more of it. As I continue to walk through life I look at our children Eliana, Kylan and Asher and I see you. Gareth you were truly a gift from above and I am a better women and mother because you were my husband. Thank you for being you... for blessing me, inspiring me, always making me laugh and loving me unconditionally. I will forever miss you my sweet love.
