Garnet Raymond Burton

March 12, 1950 — January 23, 2024

With sadness we announce the sudden passing of Garnet Burton on January 23, 2024 at the Portage District General Hospital at the age of 73 years.

He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Lynn, daughter Teresa (Jody) Doig with grandson Gabriel, son Dennis Burton (Dione Walz) with grandchildren Andrianna, Tianna, James and Lilly, brothers Newt (Brenda) Burton and Ernie (Linda) Burton, and aunt Marie Kowalchuk,  along with many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.  Garnet was predeceased by his parents Opal and George Burton, favourite and only sister Starr, brother Ken and granddaughter Olivia.

Garnet was born on March 12, 1950 in Portage la Prairie, MB, and grew up in the Bagot area.  He worked for over 30 years with Manitoba Highways.   Garnet has a passion for man outdoor activities, especially hunting and fishing.  Also, when time permitted he would play a round of golf.  Garnet had a heart of gold to all those he met over the years.  He had a special place in his heart for his family and was very proud of his grandchildren.   He will be missed by many.

As per Garnet’s wishes, his life will be celebrated privately.

A tree will be planted in memory and cared for by McKenzies Portage Funeral Chapel.  www.mckenziesportagefuneralchapel.com
