  • Our heart-felt warmth for Sue and the Turner family. Jerry and Sue were teaching colleagues at Valley Heights Secondary School as well as family friends. Enjoyed their company at many parties and on trips. Jerry will always be remembered for the environmental forest he and his students planted on the west bank property of the school, shortly after the opening, fifty years ago.
    Our prayers are with you.
    Lou, Sue, Lynn and Bill Kociuk.

  • I will always remember Jerry as one of the most generous people I have known. He has given his time and knowledge freely toward awareness of history and past sacrifices. He has been an inspiration and mentor to me. Suzanne, I am truly sorry for your loss.
