Suddenly on June 8, 2021, Gerry passed away at the Grace Hospital at the age of 63.
Gerry will be sadly missed by his loving wife Jayne Steeves; sister Leslie Carey (John); brother Rob Browne (Laura); niece Breanna Carey (Bryce); nephew Chris Carey; niece Emily Carey; stepsister Shawna Kynoch (Daryl); stepbrothers, Kent Strang and David Strang (Kristel); Bruce Strang (Nancy); loving mother in-law Doreen Steeves; brother in-law Jim Steeves (Phyllis); as well as many aunts, uncles, in-laws, cousins, nieces, nephews, good friend Bob Gillies, along with many other lifelong friends.
He was predeceased by his mother Lorraine McBride (nee Oakes), his father Ross Browne and stepmom Ruth Mitchell.
Gerry grew up in Silver Heights and graduated from Silver Heights Collegiate in 1976. Following his education Gerry pursued a career in sales originally in the construction industry with Furby Sales and later on moved into automotive sales with Focus Hyundai.
Gerry loved to play hockey and soccer in his youth excelling in both at elite levels and continued to play into his adult years. He was a lifelong and passionate fan of both the Jets and the Bombers. Gerry was kind, fun loving and a great friend to many and will be missed by all of us.
The family would like to thank Dr. Julian Joshua and the emergency and ICU team at the Grace hospital for the efforts and care they provided.
A celebration of Gerry's life will be held at a later date.
Donations in Gerry's memory may be made to Craig Street Cats animal shelter.

He was just a year ahead of Leslie and our gang of friends in school so our social lives were often blended. Gerry was always fun to be around and hang out with.
