Cape Breton Post - - In Memoriam / Games -

Glace Bay

It is with deep sad­ness that we are an­nounc­ing the sud­den pass­ing of our lov­ing hus­band, dad, pop­pie, brother, un­cle and friend. Gerry, age 66, passed away at home on Sunday, April 30, 2017 of a bro­ken heart.

Born in Glace Bay, he was the son of the late Charles and Emerita (Bates) McDon­ald.

Gerry worked for more than 25 years as a coal miner with Devco; he was also a very ex­pe­ri­enced handy­man, al­ways there to help fam­ily and friends with their projects and re­pairs or what­ever else was needed from him. He en­joyed do­ing many things, but what he truly loved the most, was spend­ing time with his beau­ti­ful wife, Bar­bara; as peo­ple know they were in­sep­a­ra­ble and will con­tinue to be, as their hearts have and will for­ever re­main joined.

Gerry is sur­vived by his lov­ing wife of 48 years, Bar­bara (nee Porter); daugh­ter, Lynette (Adrian) MacLean; sons, Les­lie (Tracy) and Thomas (Amanda); his three lov­ing grand­chil­dren, Kai­ley MacLean, Mad­den McDon­ald and Kai McDon­ald; sis­ters, Shar­a­lyn (Mike) Nolan and An­nette Marie Ge­orge ( Kerry Prouten). He will also be sadly missed by many lov­ing nieces, neph­ews, friends and ex­tended fam­ily.

Be­sides his par­ents, Gerry was also pre­de­ceased by a sis­ter, Mau­reen.

Cre­ma­tion has taken place un­der the care and di­rec­tion of V.J. McGil­livray Fu­neral Home, 16 Re­serve St., Glace Bay. In­ter­ment will be held at a later date.

Me­mo­rial do­na­tions in Gerry’s mem­ory may be made to the Di­a­betes As­so­ci­a­tion.
