Condolences & Memories (10 entries)

  • My condolences to Madeleine & Family, It is with great sadness that I learned of Gerald's passing. I can still recall the spirited lunchtime ping-pong games we had at Vipond. Gerald was the 2nd best player there, but I'm sure that he'd have you believe that he was the best. LOL. Gerald's jokes and quick wit were 2nd to none. Because of that he often made going to work more tolerable. I'm very grateful to have known Gerald. If the true wealth of a man is found in his friendships then Gerald was very wealthy. He'll be missed. - Posted by: John Pogorzelec (Co-worker- (Vipond) late 70's, early 80's) on: Dec 23, 2021

  • Gerald contacted me a few weeks back to say his goodbyes.. Thank you for that. I am so sorry and wish his family all the hugs in the world. I spent time working with Gerald at Vipond, I had the privilege of travelling to Newfoundland a couple of times with Gerald, whereas the memories we shared on these trips, are cherished and will never be forgotten. We sure did have fun. I always thought of Gerald as a good family man and a good friend. My thoughts and prayers are with Gerald's family. - Posted by: Cory Tremblay (Friend / Co-worker) on: Dec 13, 2021

I will always remember the great times we had curling together in the Eddystone and St. Rose bonspiels and Saturday morning golf at Tuxedo Golf Course.
