Gerald Jardine Betts

January 31, 1944-January 26, 2015

Gerry lost his battle with leukemia and is now at peace. He is survived by his wife of 35 years, Sharon; his daughter Olivia, sisters Louise and Elizabeth, his brother Sam (Dorothy), his niece Alicia; his nephews Bryan (Dannette), Mervyn (Maria), Malcolm (Heather), Duncan (Kareen), 8 grand-nieces, 2 grand-nephews, and can’t forget Robert and Dennis, his borrowed sons.

Gerry was raised in Port McNeill and eventually made Port Alice his home. Gerry was a wood turner, a voracious reader, an astute crossword puzzler and an avid veggie gardener. He loved his morning hikes with “whoever showed up” and all the dogs. His family meant the world to him.

At his request, there will be no memorial service. Celebrate his generous and loving spirit by performing random acts of kindness towards friends and strangers alike. Gerry is loved and will be sorely missed.
