In Loving Memory ~
With extreme sadness in our hearts, we would like to announce the passing of our loving Husband, Dad, Grandpa, and Papa.
He is survived and sadly missed by the love of his life; Pat, of 53 years, children; Cindy (Glenn) and Doug (Penni), grandchildren; Kimberley, Aimee (Dorian), Sterling, and Kale, great-granddaughters; Scotland and Killian, brothers; Vern (Connie), John (Ann), Rick (Jodie), and sister-in-law, Sheilia, mother-in-law; Dawn, sisters-in-law; Kathy (Lawrence), brothers-in-law's; Bill (Liza) and Steve (Brenda) and many wonderful nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
Predeceased by his parents; James and Maxine, brothers; David, Jimmy, Bill, and Wayne, sister-in-law; Sharon and father-in-law; Bill Jackson.
Jerry was born in Edmonton, AB, but grew up in South Fort George, BC. He worked in many facets of the auto body industry from teaching, running and owning shops, to working within the insurance industry.
In 2006 he and Pat moved back to Penticton, where he and his son Doug opened Penticton Collision Centre.
Jerry officially retired in 2021 so he and Pat could continue splitting their time between Penticton and Yuma.
Jerry enjoyed camping, fishing, playing his guitars and stock-car racing, but most of all he loved spending time with his family.
A celebration of Jerry's life will be held on Saturday, June 3, 2023 at the Chapel of Everden Rust Funeral Services, 1130 Carmi Ave, Penticton.
