Uncle Gerald will be missed by many nieces and nephews.

Gerald retired from Ford Motor Company, Oakville, Ontario in November 1989. Shortly after his retirement he and Pauline moved to PEI. He loved this island, its people and the beauty. He enjoyed being a volunteer and giving back to his community by volunteering with CMHA, the Soup Kitchen, a community youth group and his favourite political party. He loved all his sailing adventures. An informal gathering to celebrate his life will be held at the Belvedere Funeral Home Reception Centre on Saturday, June 15 from 4-7 pm. Everyone welcome. A memorial mass will be celebrated in Newmarket, ON.
