    My sincere condolences. Jerry was my first supervisor when I was a Private with the Military Police in Calgary. I know his mentoring provided the foundation that many careers were raised on including my own. Take pride in knowing Jerry served his country with honour and touched many lives in the process. He will missed and remembered with stories being told forever. Just wish I could be at the Legion to share a few of my own.

    Jerry you will be sadly missed here in Okotoks. All your many friends after mom died that you went and saw at Tim Hortons every morning. Jerry(John) was my step-dad. He was such a gentleman always there to open any door. He was so terribly sad after loosing my mom in 2010, then his first wife Unice not too terribly long after that. We then lost my own husband, John in Nov. 2010, all that was just too much for him. Jerry and my husband used to go for motorbike rides many warm summer days and they would spend hours chatting and loving life. They had such a close bond Jerry and John. Specially after Bea his second wife passed.
    We loved him and listened to many stories that Jerry would share with us about working on the rails with his dad and the Years he spent working with the forces. Christmas and the holidays just won`t be the same Jerry.
    “Rest in Peace“ LOVE YOU!!!! My boys Brent, Andrew and Devon really miss you also, specially being as we had the family all here and his place at the table was empty.
