Gerry was born on Rogers Street in East City to a family with three wonderful brothers. He is a proud uncle Gerry to many nieces and nephews whom he loved with all of his heart. Gerry or the Beaver as he was known to many in his profession. Gerry started his professional career as an auto mechanic at City Auto Electric. From there, he moved to Pioneer Chainsaws and finally Outboard Marine Corporation. Gerry spent years helping people and sharing his mechanical knowledge. He taught service schools all over Canada and fixed chainsaws and lawnmowers in the most remote places. Gerry gave back to the community through the Boy Scouts, Kinsmen and many church organizations. His positive and giving nature showed through his great smile and laughter. He would brighten a room through the kindness in his heart.
