November 2, 1949 - October 31, 2019

It is with great sorrow that we announce that our beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle passed away on October 31 at the Health Sciences Centre, two days before his 70th birthday.
Jerry is survived by his wife of 41 years, Diane Ooto; daughters, Laurelle Stubbs (Kevin) and Karlene Stubbs (Olivia); his precious granddaughters, Emma-Grace and Lilly; sisters, Gail Hannibal of Kelowna and Vicki Wilson. He will also be missed by his sisters-in-law, Joy and Ruth Ooto, and brother-in-law Ralph Ooto, extended family and numerous friends.
Jerry grew up in Winnipeg, attending Rockwood School, Grant Park and the University of Manitoba. Throughout his career he was involved in the printing industry beginning with his dad on Pembina Highway. Jerry was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the print business. A true entrepreneur, he owned various franchises, as well as PDQ Printing, Unique Greeting Cards and Nostalgia Foods.
Jerry's favourite place on earth was his cottage at Jessica Lake surrounded by his family. He was an avid fisherman in his younger years and knew all the best spots to catch the big ones. He adored his daughters and granddaughters and took such pleasure in them. Jerry was known for his wicked sense of humour, his love of family, good food, good wine, and good friends.
Friends and relatives are encouraged to share in a photo-tribute, eulogy, stories and condolences for the family by visiting Jerry's memorial page at
In accordance with Jerry's wishes, cremation has taken place and no formal service will be held. A private family celebration of his life will be held at a later date.
