In the early morning, Jerry succumbed to his stoic battle with cancer, at the age of 83.
He will be missed by his wife, Theresa, his children: Craig (Wendy), Wendy Wig, Karen (Andrew) Allan, step-son Jason (Jessica – and special sidekick, Jaylyn) Henderson; 12 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren; his brother Glyn (Ada), sister-in-law Dorothy Wynn, as well as many other relatives and friends.
Jerry was predeceased by his parents, Wilfred and Mary, his siblings, Hugh, Burt, Ruby, Pate and Don as well as his former wife and mother of his children, Jean (Traviss) Shields.
In his youth, Jerry was outstanding in the sports of speed skating and baseball and, later, was a founding member of Belvedere Golf Club. Later in life, he had a special affinity for the families and the land at Carrot Creek and Rolly View. Jerry was a great lover of his four legged pals.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Edmonton Humane Society, in his name.
A Celebration of Jerry’s Life will take place on Saturday, October 20th, 2018 at 7:00 pm at Southminster Steinhauer United Church, 10740 19 Ave NW, Edmonton.
