CHRISTOPHER BRUCE GYLES (published on November 04, 2007)

CHRISTOPHER BRUCE GYLES July 14, 1991 - November 1, 2007 It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden and tragic passing of Christopher Bruce Gyles, aged 16 years. Chris was born and raised in Winnipeg and was currently attending St. Paul's High School. He has left behind, to remember him always, his parents, Bob and Anne Gyles and older brothers, Geoff and Matt (Megan) and girlfriend, Andrea. Christopher also leaves surviving grandparents, Arnold Isford and Olly Gyles to cherish his memory. Uncle Michael (Donna), Auntie Sally (Grant) as well as many other aunts, uncles, cousins and friends including his many other mothers will also feel his passing. Chris was predeceased by grandparents, Michael and Isobel Gyles and grandmother Lillian Isford. Christopher was that one-of-a-kind guy whose personality and good nature was contagious. Chris was always ready to joke around and make you smile but wasn't afraid to show how much he cared. He wore his heart on his sleeve and cared deeply about family, friends and the many dogs, cats and hamsters he shared his life with. He loved spending time with friends, especially Andrea, Marques, Rubel and Newman. He found a variety of activities to take part in to expend his endless energy and talents. Christopher loved camp and the outdoors and spent most summers with buddies at a wide range of summer camps, swimming, boating and just goofing around. He expressed himself artistically and creatively through his art and music. Christopher also enjoyed both watching and playing sports. A natural athlete, he played hockey, football and rugby, to name a few, and was a leader in them all. Chris attended Bonnycastle Elementary School, Arthur A. Leach Junior High and, most recently, St. Paul's High School. In the short time that Chris attended St. Paul's, it is believed that he already lived up to the expectations of being a Man for Others . Those who were lucky enough to know Chris, even for a brief moment in time, understood they were in the presence of a beautiful young man with a zest for life and a deeply caring nature. The kid with the infectious smile and the hug for all will be missed. Chris was a special friend and a loving son and brother who has left us all with aching hearts. The many memories he left behind will help to ease the pain of a life that has ended far too soon. The family would like to thank everyone for the outpouring of love and sympathy at this difficult time. We would like to give special thanks to St. Paul's High School for their support and guidance. Christopher, we will hold you forever in our hearts and here is one last hug to take with you. In Our Hearts Author Unknown We thought of you with love today, But that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday, And the days before that, too. We think of you in silence. We often speak your name. Now all we have is memories, And your picture in a frame. Your memory is our keepsake, With which we'll never part. God has you in His Keeping. We have you in our Heart. Memorial Mass will be held on Wednesday, November 7 at 1:30 p.m. in St. Ignatius Roman Catholic Parish Church, Stafford at Corydon with Fr. Alan Fogarty S.J. presiding. A private family interment will follow at later date. In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, donations may be made to the Winnipeg Humane Society, 45 Hurst Way R3T 0R3, The Art Program at St. Paul's High School, 2200 Grant Ave. R3P 0P8 or to a charity of choice.
