Gerry had a love for law enforcement where he had served on the Hearst police force for 5 years and in 1969 moved to Kirkland Lake to further his career till his retirement in 1996. His true love was his wife Pierrette “Pete”. They both loved retirement together and spent many winters away in Arizona and loved coming home and sharing all their adventures.
A special thank you to CCAC, VON and volunteers of Closing the Gap for the great care & compassion shown to our family during this difficult period in our lives.
In keeping with Gerry’s wishes cremation will take place and no celebration of life will be held.
