Gerrit “Gerry”

April 18, 1928 – Nov. 5, 2016

At 88 years of age, Gerry passed away peacefully with family members around him in the early morning of November 5. Gerry was a humble man of faith and integrity! He lived a full life working hard for his family, his church and his community, and doing things he loved: biking, gardening, curling, camping, travelling, reading and making music. He loved to smile and have fun. The grace of God was so evident in everything he did. He was a devoted family man and leaves a legacy of love through them. He is survived by Pita, his loving wife and friend of over 64 years, his six children: Phil (Odette), Ed (Joanne), John (Deb), Brian (Kathy), Linda (Martin), Bob (Kathy), 15 grand children, 26 great grand children, his sister Anneke (Jan) and many in laws, nieces and nephews. Gerry was predeceased by his parents, four siblings and two great grandsons. Heartfelt thanks go out from the Doornenbal family to the staff at Royal Oak who lovingly cared for Gerry in his final years and who were especially compassionate in his final days. A celebration of Gerry’s life will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 9, 2016 at Bethel Christian Reformed Church, 5704 – 51 Ave. Lacombe. Interment at Fairview Cemetery, Lacombe.
