Jerry was an extremely devoted husband and family man. Munna enjoyed playing hockey well into his 70’s. He loved the outdoors, farming, hunting, fishing and bonfires. We will always remember and cherish those special moments at his annual birthday party at the farm. Jerry was a generous man with his time and his talents.
