    I’ve just known Jerry for about 6 months – meeting at the Kensington Legion – someone I newly met, but one of those few people whom I immediately felt I had known for years – & a very nice personable guy indeed.

    Such a disappointment & shock to hear of his passing, but for his sake, I’m glad it seemed to happen quickly & peacefully.

    My sincere condolences to all family, loved ones & friends!

    We are so very sorry to hear about Gerry. He will be missed!! We had many great adventures on the farm, although he said on more than one occasion he would not pick any more rocks out of our fields for us! We are blessed to have several framed pieces of his artwork in our home that are now, more than ever, true treasures from a man we both loved. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  8. Gerry was one of the “good guys”. I played darts with him, shared a lot of laughs with him and tried to keep him out of “jail” with the tax man. His art work was something that was unique and very unexpected from a macho man like him. I will miss him. May he rest in peace.
