Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
I have been fortunate to know Gerry and the Svoboda family for 23 years. Gerry was a kind hearted, dedicated man with a warm laugh to match his love of life, family and his enjoyment of hockey and football. Particular of note was Gerry's commitment to help with his children and grandchildren. He enjoyed his years with these interests to the fullest and memories of him will fondly remain with all he knew. - Posted by: david sikorski (friend) on: Sep 07, 2022

We were neighbours and co workers. It was Gerry that helped me get the job and for that I will always be thankful to him. Gerry and Betty were very good neighbours and friends. I truly am sorry for the loss you have suffered. - Posted by: Marilyn (Friend) on: Sep 07, 2022
