BYRNE, Gerard “Gerry”


After a courageous battle with cancer, Gerry passed away peacefully at the Sault Area Hospital surrounded by his family on October 7, 2019 at the age of 79.

Survived by his beloved and devoted wife, Evelyn Byrne (Montgomery) who stayed unfalteringly by his side. Beloved father of Stephen Byrne (Maureen) and Gary Byrne (Karen) — he was our rock. Dearest Papa of Sarah, Emma and Adam Byrne whom he adored with all his heart.

Funeral Mass to be held at Holy Family Church (208 Prentice Avenue) on Friday October 11, 2019 at 11 a.m., followed by a luncheon in the church hall.

We are forever grateful to all the staff of the Complex Continuous Care Unit (2C) at the SAH led by Jen Coutu for their excellent care, professionalism and compassion during this most difficult time.

In lieu of flowers, donations to St. Vincent Place are appreciated.

Arrangements entrusted to O’Sullivan Funeral Home and Cremation Centre, 215 St. James St, 705-759-8456.

He is in our hearts forever.
