GERALD THOMAS BATES
Gerald passed away with his family by his side on April 5, 2016, at the age of 88 years.
He will be remembered and sadly missed by his loving partner Brenda, son Skip, daughter Pam (Michelle), grandchildren Jeff (Nikki), Kristi, Kelsey, Kaitlyn, Chelsea and Marley, great grandchild Beckett, his best friend Al, golf buddies Lou and Lynn, and the many people whose lives he touched throughout his journey through life. He will also be missed by his extended family and grandchildren Hannah, Hailey and Heather.
Gerry was sadly predeceased by the love of his life Joan, and son Kim.
Gerry loved to golf, a game he never mastered, and was loved for his sense of humour. He could always be counted on to tell a bad joke, at which he would always laugh first and loudest.
Gerry was cremated at his request. A celebration of his life will be held at a later date.
Condolences may be directed to the family
