Lost fight to lung cancer

Garry Naybour
Dob 4/2/1958 -
Passed 11/04/18

After a surprise diagnosis of cancer, Garry Naybour, after battling and fighting for a few months passed away at 10.34pm on the 11/04/19.

Unfortunately, because the cancer was so aggressive, they could not offer Garry any treatment in order to prolong his life, or even be given a chance to fight.
It was too far along, to aggressive and nothing anyone could do to stop it. As a family we were told he would have weeks to live and to prepare ourselves.

It has been an excruciating last few weeks as we have watched our dad, brother, grandad and uncle slowly getting worse.

A dying wish to be held by his son whilst he drifted off was fulfilled. However, nobody wants to see anybody go through such a traumatic time. Garry tried to hold on and gave the best fight he could but couldn’t continue, as he became to weak.

1 in 2 people are diagnosed with cancer which is a staggering amount. Please help us, his family, and Garry to be able to give the send off he needs, the send off he earned after all them years of being a dad, grandad, brother and uncle to all the family and to everyone else Garry has helped, and taught along the way.

Our crowd fund will help the family of Garry Naybour to give him the send off he deserves. Gary was known as a legend in Harlow, Essex and forever he will be.

Garry always worked hard, doing various jobs, such as panel beating and security work.
He was a powerlifting champion, he was a black belt in karate and judo, taught many mix martial arts,
He helped kids that where being bullied, he played rugby for Harlow.
He was a well known doorman around pubs and clubs around Harlow.

Garry enjoyed playing his guitar, and loved playing and singing in a band.
He also loved to go out on his beloved motorbike.

Recently Garry won custody of his two little boys, 7 and 10 and they had an amazing few months living with their dad, finally settling down and have now been taken to a foster home. It’s heartbreaking everything that’s been left behind.

Love from the Naybours, with Gary forever in our hearts.
