1944-2021 ~ It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Gerald “Gerry” Holm on June 3, 2021 at the age of 77 years.
He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 53 years, Anne and his daughters Michele (Jody) and Vicki (Matt). Bree, Colby (Derrick), Jake, Eriko and Josh have many happy memories of their Grandpa and will share them with Gerry’s great grandchildren Teagen, Fisher, Mason and Hayden.
Gerry is survived by his brothers, Jack (Emma), Jim (Jayne), Clarence (Mary) and Eugene (Debbie). He was predeceased by his parents Clarence and Hermione and sister Joanne (Ron).
Gerry was born in Fargo, ND in 1944. He studied at Valley City State University, the University of Minnesota and attended art school in New York before moving to Canada in 1968.
Gerry worked a wide variety of jobs before beginning his 30- year career with Parks Canada and was always proud of the job he did on the Giant Cedars Boardwalk in Mount Revelstoke National Park.
Gerry filled his retirement time with gardening, golf, winters in Arizona, stained glass projects, playing cards and visiting with friends. He kept his mind sharp with puzzles and daily doses of Jeopardy.
The family would like to thank the medical staff involved with Gerry’s care. To all who have sent flowers, cards and shared stories, thank you. Your love, support and caring have helped so much during this difficult time.
There will be no formal funeral service. In memoriam donations may be made to the Spur Valley Golf Resort.
