Passed away peacefully at home, with family by his side at the age of 86.
Beloved husband of the late Mary-Jane McDonald. Loving father of the late Andy, Jerry Jr., Debbie, Cathy (Dan), Rosemary (Louis), Charlene, Eileen (Stephen), Doreen (Paul), and Ann. Grandfather to 4 generations. Predeceased by his parents George and Cecilia McDonald. Brother of Stan, Kay, Pat, Kevin, Patricia, Margret Susane, Norbert, late George and the late Russel. Jerry will be missed by many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Jerry was a strong and hardworking man. He raised 9 kids with Mary-Jane and made sure they never went without. He was an avid outdoors-man always trapping, gardening and fishing, or just keeping himself busy.
A private burial will take place at a later date with his beloved wife Mary-Jane. Memorial contributions payable by cheque or online to the S.A.H.F. Cancer Care Fund would be appreciated by the family.
A special thank you to Jerry's nurse Susan and Dr. Apostle for their care and compassion shown.
Arrangements entrusted to the Arthur Funeral Home - Barton & Kiteley Chapel (492 Wellington St. E. 705-759-2522). Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at www.arthurfuneralhome.com for the McDonald family.
