Jerry was born on October 28, 1952, was raised in Lac La Biche and at a young age moved to Edmonton, AB. Returning to his roots in Lac La Biche, he bought land in order to fulfill his life long dream of building a home with his own two hands, which he accomplished by doing much of the work himself. He loved his family; his dear friend, Brenda; his home; his two dogs, Coco and Poots; and his cat and her kittens. Coco and Poots were devoted to him and the protectors of the acreage from all sorts of wild life. He loved his community, Normadeau, had many friends and neighbors, all who helped and supported him when he fell ill – they and the community meant so much him.
