It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to a much-loved father, brother, uncle, grandfather, and great grandfather. Gerry (or Sherwood as he is known down home) was born in Halifax County, NS on February 01, 1938, and passed away at the age of 83 in Edmonton, AB on May 28, 2021, after a brave battle with cancer.
He is survived by his daughters Paula (Lyle), Heather, Julie and Laurie, brothers and sisters Betty, Beverly, Clyde (Theresa), Rita (Arwed), Stanley (Vicki), and Alan (Elaine), numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren, extended family, friends and his two constant companion mini schnauzers Murphy and Sally.
Gerry was predeceased by his wife Brenda, his parents James and Isabell, his brothers Vernon and Sonny and grandson Alec.
Cremation has taken place. At his request, there will be no service. The family wishes to thank the doctors and staff at Capital Care Norwood (there are too many to name) who took such good care of Gerry during his stay at hospice.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made in Gerry’s name to your local Canadian Cancer Society office.
