  1. Lori and Dan Limacher :

    Our thoughts are with all of you during this time of loss.
    Jerry was an incredible man, one who always brought a smile to my face with his quick wit and humour (he had a way of catching me off guard with what he noticed and with the way he said alway said it- and this goes back to my childhood).
    Wishing you peace in remembering this incredible person, and the energy to keep sharing those wonderful stories with one another.
    Love Lori and Dan

    As a young teenager I was fortunate enough to have Jerry as my first boss. I worked with Jerry at the Shell station in Parkdale for 5 years pumping gas and being mentored under Jerry’s watchful eye. These were the years of the muscle cars and there were plenty of them “hanging around” Jerry’s station. He was always known for his kindness and generosity to all of us kids that spent endless hours at the station washing our cars and just being a general nuisance to the regular customers. But not in Jerry’s eyes. His answer to those who complained was “the more kids that are here the less chance of being robbed”. That was Jerry.
    I will always cherish those years at the “Shell” and the many hours spent working with Jerry not for Jerry. He truly was a remarkable man and friend.
    Greg Belanger and the rest of the “punks”
