JERRY WAYNE ANDERSON
Jerry was predeceased by his parents, Ruth and Norval Anderson, mother-in-law Sina Clegg, and niece Renate Halozan. Remaining to cherish his memory are his wife Rose; daughter Lisa (Jason) Yaskiw, granddaughters, Krista and Addison; son Mark (Laura) and granddaughter Rylynn; sister Shirley Halozan; brother-in-law and sister-in-law Lloyd and Lorna Clegg, and Murray and May Robins, and many loved nieces, nephews and cousins.
Jerry was born in Goderich, ON on December 31, 1939. Jerry's excellent work ethic began while growing up in Toronto working many different jobs. In 1960, Jerry became a proud member of the RCMP, serving for 25 years in many locations throughout Manitoba and Kenora, ON, retiring as a staff sergeant. In 1985, Jerry began his second career, which spanned 15 years, with TD Bank Corporate Security. In his final retirement, his special job each fall was guiding in Churchill for Frontiers North Adventures, a job he loved.
Jerry led a life full of activities and hobbies that brought him great joy. Actively, he enjoyed biking, fishing, hockey and baseball and - in his later years - weekly boxing with his Parkinson's Rock Steady group. Another activity Jerry enjoyed was the time spent with the retired RCMP and TD Bankers coffee groups, special thanks to Errol Flynn and Denny Booth. His hobbies focused on his love of nature and everything wildlife; especially bird watching, photography, but his greatest passion was polar bears.
Above all, he was a devoted family man. His wife, children and granddaughters came first. Rose was the love of his life for 51 years, he was proud of his children, Lisa and Mark and all of their accomplishments, and his granddaughters - Grandpa's girls - were his greatest treasure.
We wish to give special thanks to Dr. Raubenheimer, Dr. Borys, Dr. Dhaliwal, the SICU team at Health Sciences Centre and the GA5 neuro ward.
A private interment and Celebration of Life has already taken place.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Jerry's memory may be made to Parkinson Canada, #7-414 Westmount Drive, Winnipeg, Manitoba R2J 1P2. Online donations can be sent to: www.parkinson.ca
To Those I Love and Those Who Love Me
I Am With You Still
I give you this one thought to keep
I am with you still - so do not weep.
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
So do not think of me as gone -
Know I am with you still - in each new dawn.

Condolences to Mark and Rose and the rest of the family. Jerry from what I know through stories, and what I've witnessed in his boxing classes, lived an extremely rich and fulfilling life. It was my pleasure to work with Jerry as his coach in the Rock Steady Boxing program. Jerry was tough as nails. On any given day, no matter how bad the fight was with Parkinson's, Jerry ALWAYS chose to fight back and live his life the way he wanted to live it. - Posted by: Brandt Butt (Boxing Coach) on: Jul 08, 2020

I am proud to display an original Jerry Anderson photo of “Dancing Polar Bears” on my living room wall. A gift from my TD Bank days.

Gerry had been a good friend for many years, always enjoyed his company, recall his many visits to my home in Camperville. And the many times I visited his home always made to feel welcome.

I am a good friend of Mark and grew up with the Anderson family. Jerry was a source of inspiration and was a perfect example of what a person should be. Jerry, thank you for all of the memories and for all of your loving support over the years. I wouldn't be the person I am without you in my life. Rest in peace Jerry. - Posted by: Glen Dawson (Friend) on: Jul 04, 2020
I only knew Jerry for a few years, but it seems to me that he lived his life to the fullest. In his work, family, friends and play. When the elderly die; a library is lost and volumes of wisdom and knowledge are gone. R.I.P. - Posted by: Al Friesen (Friend) on: Jul 04, 2020
