Garfield will be deeply missed by all of his friends & family including Lucia & Betty Kedron & his nephew Leo Sullivan & the Reid family. Garfield will greatly be missed by his god daughter Stephanie Jaco & family. Garfield spent his life exploring the world. He was born in Jamaica to the late Wilfred and Linnette Lue-Shing in 1950. In 1966 he immigrated to Canada at the young age of 16. He then moved to New York, then to Montreal and then finally settled in Toronto. He met the love of his life, Dolores in Burlington, Ontario. They spent many family vacations in Florida. Garfield worked very hard and retired from Sunlife Financial after 35 years. He spent many Friday nights watching the Blue Jays, Oshawa Generals, or his all time favourite, The Montreal Canadians. If he wasn't watching sports you could find him watching the horse race at the Woodbine Race Track. The family would like to extend their most sincere gratitude to all the nurses and doctors on the Palliative Care floor at the Lakeridge Health Oshawa Hospital, who took such good care of Garfield. Cremation has taken place and due to the COVID-19 pandemic, no services will be held at this time. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in memory of Garfield to the diabetes association.
