He is survived by his loving wife Irene; grandson Stewart and his mother Karen (Murray); great-grandsons, Peter and Alister, many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Gerry was predeceased by his parents, Maude and Harry, his sisters, Audrey, Mary and Thelma, brothers, Arthur, Ronald, Allan and Crawford, and his beloved son Gerry Jr.
The family would like to thank Dr. Fletcher and Dr. Robinson, nurses and health care aides for their wonderful care extended to Gerry during the last few years of his earthly journey.
A donation in memory of Gerry may be made to a charity of one's choice.
A private interment has been held.
Gerry fought the good fight, he has finished the race, he kept the faith.
"Well done, good and faithful servant."
