SCHILLER, Gerald (Jerry) James

Gently wrapped in the caring arms of his family our beloved Jerry left us for a more comfortable and peaceful place early December 1, 2009. Survived by the love of his life and best friend Cherene, 2 sons: Ian and Darcy (Nicole); daughter Cheryl (Gary) and his four cherished granddaughters: Amanda (Ryan), Kristin (Devin), Kyla (Kyle) and Jordan. His faithful companion and best nurse TJ. His two brothers: Herman (Maggie) and Bill (Marion) & brother-in-law Fred. Also his extended family: Dave (Judy), Carol (Danny), Doug (Cheryl), Norma (Murray). Many nieces and nephews, all of whom he adored. He is also survived by the mother of his sons (Sharon Reslein). Jerry will also be missed by his many friends, both old and new. He had a generous soul and was quickly loved by all who knew him. Predeceased by his parents, mother-in-law, and two sisters: Dorothy (Joe) and Marge. As well as his humorous friend Chipper. Jerry’s career spanned many years in the heavy trucking industry. His love of this industry stayed with him all his life. Jerry and Cherene spent most of their lives in Saskatchewan, before a 7 year stint in Calgary and the last 2 years in their new home in Maple Ridge, They thoroughly loved their second home in Harrison Holiday Park, Harrison Hot Springs. We will miss you so much Jerry, but are glad your suffering in this life is over. Rest in Peace. Memorial Service to be held Saturday, December 5, 2009 at 2pm in the MAPLE RIDGE FUNERAL CHAPEL (Osborn’s) 11969 – 216th St, Maple Ridge.
