Gail, Gerry was one of the kindest and most gentleman Dwayne and I had ever known. We loved our visits with all of you but we will miss Gerry's quick whit and his positive outlook on life! Even when he was not feeling well, he put the needs of others ahead of his own comfort and he will always be remembered in our heart for all of those that he has held out a helping hand too. So very glad to know that he was where he wanted to be and you were by his side. He loved life and he loved you and all of his extended family. He will be missed bu never forgotten.

Gerry was already greatly missed in Okeechobee AA. He helped so many with his message of hope. He always had his hand out to the new comer and made them feel welcome. He was/is a great person whom left his spirit with us to carry on as we will when we share. My friend Gerry used to say....... Never will he be forgotten. Love and hugs. Gail J.

Losing a brother ... there are no words that I can express how hard this is for you and your families. Please know that he loved each of you so much.

My heart goes out to you with the loss of Gerry. He was a wonderful man, and you both have fought a long and exhausting battle. So, take care of yourself, Gail. We all know that Gerry is entertaining the angels with "Lady" and his guitar strumming. I remember fondly those days long ago at the Baskatong lodge where Gerry led the group in singalongs in front of the bonfire. My prayers for peace extend to both of you.

Lorraine

Lorraine many moons have set since the last time I saw you and Gerry and Gail. Your brother was a mentor to me at work and with anything else going on in my life. Gerry was one of the nicest, kindest and funniest person I have ever met. I am honoured that I got to spend time with home for so many years at the PSC. I loved his jokes... his walking stick to keep the girls away ... how he would get his hair cut all of them .... he was a joy to be around. My heart goes out to all of you. Sincerely Julie Wahab McNeely

Julie Wahab McNeely , December 28, 2019

Gail and family

I offer you and your family my deepest sympathy, my thoughts are with you today and I hope that Gerry's passing will give you some solace to know he is now at peace.
Take care of yourself.

Mes condoléances à toi, Lorraine, et à toute ta famille. Perdre son grand frère laisse un vide particulier. C’est un peu une partie de notre enfance qui s’envole. Heureusement, les souvenirs restent. Amitiés. Diane Dutil
