It’s with the heaviest heart that we share with you, on behalf of Natalia and the family, the sudden passing of Gareth Reardon. On August 4th, Gareth was out for his evening bike ride and was tragically struck by a vehicle, in Pitt Meadows, B.C.
There are no words to convey the rawness of this all. There’s immense grief and disbelief being felt amongst the Reardon family during this time. Gareth was (and will continue to be) known as a deeply loved husband, father, son, brother and true friend. The impact and richness he's brought to all of our lives will continue to be deeply felt and never forgotten.
During these initial days and weeks there will be many different things they'll be in need of.
We don't know all that there is to take into financial consideration right now but we can anticipate there's going to be many unforeseen costs on the horizon for them. The longevity of our support to Natalia and the kids will be crucial and one of the practical ways that we can provide some peace of mind is through this platform.

Natalia and the kids are going to take things day by day. They're going to have hard days and they're going to have less hard days. Eliana, Kylan and Asher don’t fully understand what has happened and it's heartbreaking to think that they should even have to grasp this new reality at such young ages. It's going to be a long road for them but let's help carry them through it with the support we can offer and the sacrificial love we can surround them with in these coming days, weeks and months. May we also extend that same love and heartfelt remorse to Gareth's dear parents John and Sandra, and Gareth's sister Catherine.
We all love the Reardon family and want to honour Gareth's life in all that we say and do as we meet the needs of his beloved children and wife.
