In a statement given to us via Wiltshire Police, his family has paid their respects to Garry.

He was born in London and worked as a printer before training to become an Anglican Priest.

Garry served in parishes across Lancashire, which is where he also joined the TA, and met his wife Pam.

He joined the Royal Army Chaplains Department of the Army in 2008, serving in the UK and overseas with different units.

Garry's family has said:

"His passion was country sports, football and cricket - both playing and watching.

"Garry was a loving husband, a wonderful step father, a caring son and brother. He was a devoted priest and cared deeply and passionately about the welfare of his soldiers and fellow Chaplains. He will be greatly missed by all.

"Garry leaves behind wife Pam and step daughter Heather."
