It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that our family announces the passing of our beloved husband, father, brother, grandfather and friend on Nov. 7, 2014. Jerry was pre-deceased by parents Jim and Marie, and son Jim. Jerry is survived by his wife of 53 years, Joan; daughters Cathy (Gauri) and Jeri-Lynne; brother Bob (Marilyn); sister Deb; grandchildren, Sara, Amanda and Jamie; great grandchildren Jordan, Aiden, Max and Lucas; furbabies Oliver and Lily; as well as extended family and many friends . Born and raised in Vancouver and later on a farm in Port Kells, Jerry settled in Cloverdale with his wife Joan where they raised their three children and resided for 30 years.
Relocating to 108 Mile Ranch after an early retirement meant Jerry was able to pursue his love of fishing and hunting full time. Jerry will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
A celebration of Jerry’s life will be held on Saturday, Dec. 6, 2014 at 1 p.m. at the Donn residence in the 108.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the 100 Mile District Hospital or the Canadian Diabetes Association in Jerry’s memory would be appreciated.
