We Remember

DROLET, Joseph Ovide “Gerald”

August 19, 1958 — November 23, 2023

The time has come to celebrate the life of Gerald Joseph Drolet who was a father, husband, friend, brother, uncle. A truly remarkable individual who brought joy and light to everyone he encountered. Gerald was born on August 19, 1958, in Sudbury, ON. Gerald made the most out of his time on this beautiful planet, before departing on November 23, 2023.

Gerald will truly be missed by his brothers Maurice, Richard, Gary, Paul, Michael, and Robert, as well as by his sister Suzanne. The Turton family, whom we sincerely thank for their support, will also deeply feel his absence. His departure leaves a void felt by friends, family, nieces, and nephews alike. Gerald was predeceased by his wife, Sharon Sonkory; and by his mother, Isabel; father Fernand; brothers, Donald and Marcel; and by his niece, Breanna, and nephew, Brandon.

Gerald lived a good life, one that we will forever cherish, and one we will continue to remember. I know Gerald would hate to see us crying for him. He would want us to cling to the beautiful memories we all have of him.

Never forgotten, always remembered.

Family and friends will honour him, each in their own way. No formal service will be held.
