March 21, 1954 – June 11, 2022

It is with the happiest of memories and greatest sadness that we share the peaceful passing of our amazing and beautiful Gerry Gendron, who died at home June 11, 2022, surrounded by his family. Beautiful husband, wonderful father, precious grandfather, beloved brother, uncle and friend.
He leaves behind those who will honour and pass on his values of loyalty, kindness, integrity and his quirky humour: spouse Jeannine, children, Joël (Carmelle), André (Marie Claude), Nathalie (Scott) and Robert: his amazing grandchildren that he loved so much, Jean Michel, Cédric, Rosalie, Thomas, Mélodie, Vincent, Annabelle and Emilie; his sister Dianne (Bert) Verzyl, brother Adélard (Anneli) Gendron, and lifelong friends, Robert Fontaine and François Gratton.
Gerry was predeceased by his parents, Agénor and Emma Gendron, siblings, Léo and Anne-Marie Gendron, sisters-in-law, Hélène and Léa Gendron, brother-in-law Michel Bohémier, mother and father-in-law Denis and Blanche Bohémier.
C'est avec les plus beaux souvenirs et avec beaucoup de tristesse que nous annonçons le départ de notre bien aimé et cher Gérard Jean Joseph Gendron. Il est parti paisiblement chez lui le 11 juin 2022, entouré de sa famille comme il l'avait souhaité.
Nous nous souviendrons toujours de Gérard comme étant sage, patient et agissant toujours avec intégrité. Son amour et son dévouement à sa famille et ses proches étaient présents dans sa façon de vivre à tous les jours. Sa présence était accompagnée d'un sourire et d'un air taquin. Gérard était passionné par la nature, le canotage et l'histoire. Il était toujours prêt à partir à l'aventure. Il était généreux avec ses connaissances dans ses passions et accueillait tous avec bras ouvert. Tu nous manqueras, Gérard.
Thank you to family and friends for your caring and support. Special thanks to CancerCare who have helped us navigate this seven-year journey and to Palliative Care Santé Sud for guidance and compassion in the final weeks.
Flowers are gratefully declined. If you can, please donate to CancerCare, Taché Food Bank or a local food bank of your choice.
