On April 23, 2011 at the age 86, Gerald George Curthoys peacefully entered into the presence of the Lord surrounded by his loving family.
Gerry will be remembered and lovingly missed by his children John (Leslie), Cathleen (Lyal) Falcon, Timothy (Margaret), Lesley (Rusty), her grandchildren Jennifer, Angela (Chad), Nicole (Ryan), Caitlin, Arthur and great grandchildren Taylor, Hailey, MaCkenzie and MaCkaila.
He is predeceased by his cherished wife Doris in September, always together, they were
inseparable. As well, he was predeceased by their son, Terrence Paul.
Gerry had a wonderful sense of humor and loved to talk about his travel adventures
or latest golf game. With seven hole-in-ones, he was inspiration to us all. His
greatest passion was his family, always interested in our endeavors with enthusiasm
and ready to offer advice. He challenged us to do our very best, regardless of how small
or large the task.
How lucky we are to have grown up with parents that showed us how to love and care. We shall never forget your kindness, thoughtfulness and enduring attentiveness to Mum
in her struggle with Alzheimer\'s. Knowing you are united again with your life-long
love brings us great peace.
Cheers to a wonderful life filled with loving family.
