He will be sadly missed by his grandchildren Danaka and Ryley Roy, who loved him so very much, as well as by numerous nieces, nephews, friends and extended family members. Jerry had a love and devotion for his family that could be seen and felt by everyone around him, his infectious smile will be something that those who knew and loved him will forever remember. A well-known and respected engineer, Jerry owned and operated his Engineering firm for many years. He had a passion for his career, whether Civil, Structural, Mechanical or Electrical Engineering and possessed a willingness to share this knowledge in order to help those around him. Jerry was a selfless man who always put others first, his kindness and compassion will be his legacy that will live on in all of us forever. The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at Health Sciences North, 4th Floor Oncology Unit, especially to Julia (RN), the compassion and thoughtfulness for Jerry as well as the family will never be forgotten.

8 Condolences

  1. Dear Brenda and family:
    I would like to extend my most heartfelt condolences on your very great loss. I knew Jerry professionally and can attest not only to his superior knowledge but also to his tireless work ethic. On a personal level, whenever Jerry and I were together, he was always willing to listen to and consider my ideas. He was instrumental in both the design and the creation of my business. Jerry never complained when I pressed for results.
    I will miss him.

  6. It is with fond memories that I remember our youth with his electronic magic as Jerry ran the electronics, sound, and light in our teen-age rock band. From building speaker boxes, to flashing light shows with a million toggle switches, Jerry’s skills were respected by all of us. Perhaps this was the beginning of his future in engineering. His congeniality made him magnetic with friends. He will be missed by us all.

    Offering his family our most sincere sympathy.
