  • Fred Jarvis says:

    So sorry to hear about Garry passing on. He was a dedicated crib member of our club and we enjoyed many an evening over the past years playing crib and kibitzing about the Kelowna Rockets. Rest in Peace Garry with our Lord. God Bless Carol and family as you remember a husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and friend and cherish the good times you shared with each other. Fred & Bonnie Jarvis

  • Lisa Binnie says:

    I first met Gerry through the cribbage club several years ago, and then, through me, he joined the lawn bowling club and I enjoyed playing both games with him over the years. I so enjoyed his quiet humour and really lovely smile. I thought he was such a gentle soul and so accepting of others.
    I will miss Gerry. My condolences to his family.

  • RICK IRWIN says:

    The One Thing my Cousin Gary & I had in common was our SPORTS! I Remember my Cousin Gary calling me back in 1982 , when the Vancouver Canucks were playing the New York Islanders in the Stanley CUP Finals. Cousin Gary told me that he had 2 tickets for game 3 of the series . I said I would love to go! We had a great time at the game, although there wasn’t much cheering for the home team that night where the Islanders beat the Canucks that night. Thanks for that Memory, Cousin Gary! I will miss you! Until we meet again. Love you!

  • Peter To says:

    Sorry to hear the passing of Mr Gary Kerrison.
    Enjoyed all the fun and lunches with Gary at Steel Span Inc. for three year. Rest in peace Gary.

  • Donna Holdridge says:

    Garry was my favorite cousin. Our Mothers were Sisters and our families lived together for several years in Toronto, Ontario. We enjoyed our playful times together during our younger years. After Garry & Carol moved to Vancouver we continued to keep in touch, including many visits. When my Mother passed away in 2018, Garry and Carol flew to Toronto and Garry gave a beautiful graveside service, which we greatly appreciated. We were very fortunate to have had such a loving family relationship over many years. I will miss our long distance telephone conversations. Rest in peace Garry. I love you.

  • Roger & Marlene Jones says:

    Our deepest condolences & love to Carol & family in the passing of Garry. His smile & subtle humor always brought us joy. Out thoughts & prayers are with you.

  • Larry Zablotny and Faith Zablotny says:

    We have been friends with Carol and Garry since 1966. They moved to Vancouver just before we did without knowing they had moved. A nicer kinder true couple in every sense. We had many many days together and enjoyed every one .Larry Z.

  • Carole Balaka says:

    Our parents were close friends, years before Garry and I came along.
    We vacationed every summer in Wasaga Beach. Swimming mostly and playing Tiger Shark. Fun had by all.
    Friday night, was cribbage night for our 2 Dads. We both could count and moved the pegs up the board.
    Groomsman at my wedding, Garry walked my Mom down the aisle to her seat.
    Years slipped by. Trips made to Toronto and Brampton brought unexpected visits. Door bell rang and two smiling faces standing to greet us..
    Thinking of you Carol and your family in this difficult time.
    Garry you will be missed.
    Love you like a brother.
    Rest In Peace

  • Indrah Kerrison says:

    I have many wonderful memories of my time with dad. He may have been my father-in-law, but I had him in my life for 21 years, longer than my own father who passed away when I was thirteen. I’m grateful for ours talks, his kindness, and watching him play with his grandkids. I’m very happy he got to attend with mom my first birth. It was a special day for all. Really glad I had a birth photographer to capture their expression’s as S came out. Like I said, I have many wonderful memories and I’ll cherish them forever. Going to miss you VERY much dad. Sad I don’t get to hear you play the accordion anymore, or watch you beat Dan at cribbage or read stories to S & N, or tell bad dad jokes. It’s going to be a hard adjustment not having you around anymore. Take care! Love, Indrah xoxoxo

  • Ron PATRICK says:

    It has been a great joy to know and have spent time with Garry and Carol. When I first met him he was Bishop of Surrey 1st Ward. When I learned of his work I was impressed that he was a captain of industry. A model of courage, vision and business acumen. His good nature, kindness and generosity made friendship with him easy. We enjoyed good dinners, time at his home and in the swimming pool. I appreciated his quiet confidence and wisdom. My heart felt condolences to Carol and family. Love from myself and Arja.

  • Janis Clark says:

    Our family loved sitting in front of Gary and Carol at church. Gary was so patient with our 3 rambunctious little boys, and showed them kindness every week. We will miss Gary, and we look forward to a happy reunion in Heaven one day. Sending love and prayers to your family at this difficult time.

  • Yvonne Gibbon says:
