Remembering Our Friend Gary Shantz

With heavy hearts, we gather to remember Gary Shantz, a cherished member of our Centre In The Square family who passed away last week. Gary’s unwavering dedication to the arts, dance, and theatre left a lasting impact on all who knew him. For an impressive 43 years, Gary served in various roles at Centre In The Square over the years, ensuring the seamless execution of our events. His passion for his work was evident in every interaction, and his influence extended far beyond our theatre walls, encompassing his work at Drayton Theatre and his role as a judge in dance competitions across Canada amongst many other endeavors.

Please join us in celebrating Gary’s life on Thursday, May 30, 2024, from 4pm – 7pm at Centre In The Square, located at 101 Queen Street North, Kitchener. Let’s come together to share stories and memories of this remarkable man who touched so many lives.

All are welcome to pay tribute to Gary and the profound impact he had on our community.

As expressions of sympathy, donations to St. Mary’s Hospital Foundation or Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated by the family (cards available at the funeral home).
