Christopher Gould started this petition to Central Frontenac Township and

Garfield Dennie’s monument was professionally handcrafted out of steel and payed for fully by his family, & placed on the Oconto Cemetery grounds under the impression it will remain on Gary’s graveside for his family and friends to honour.

Garys Steel Monument follows the bi-laws height & width requirements with the exception that it’s steel, like most other decorations & monuments placed on the Oconto grounds are made of steel, wood & ceramic moulds with much more prohibited items that have been their for many years without letters of concern or removal.

We do understand by-laws are important and due to safety concerns or any issues these guidelines need to be followed, but to ask removal of a monument in place for 13 days without detailed explanation, when items have remained for years before or after rules have been changed is not necessary. This monument carries the same issues as any decoration placed in the cemetery would, which is why we are so passionate for a change of by-law and heart for our community. We ask for a difference in by-law, we ask to pay any amount required to have this monument remain & placed by the caretaker or township. We are willing to fix the monument in any way to change the status from monument to decoration just to have a permanent place in the cemetery. 

Please sign this petition to show support for Gary, this monument was made special for his love of country and cowboys, & it would mean everything to have it remain with him!
