Obituary of Gerald Robert Alexander
Please share a memory of Gerald to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our Dad, Gerald Robert Alexander (Gerry) in Cranbrook BC on March 16, 2023.
Gerry was welcomed to the world by his parents Alvin and Marguerite Alexander on Feb 20, 1945 in Rosetown Saskatchewan. Gerry grew up in Rosetown along with his sister Katherine. Gerry met the love of his life there, Susan and they were married in 1967. The young couple moved to Fernie BC in 1970 to raise their family in the mountains.
Fernie was the ideal place as Gerry loved the outdoors. He enjoyed hunting with Lee, fishing, hiking, camping, skiing, woodworking, gardening and spending time with his family. He built a cabin at the lake where endless family time was enjoyed. Family was everything to him, he was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather (Pa) and uncle. He loved to teach the kids everything he knew. Gerry always had nicknames for everyone, which made us all feel special.
Gerry is survived by his children, Cynthia (Rick), Lee (Karen) and Sandra (Rob), grandchildren Jessica, Laura, Josh, Curtis, Eric, Stephanie and Tessa as well as great grand children Xavier, Cruz, Raiden and Mabel. He will be deeply missed by us all but remembered fondly.
Gerry was predeceased by his parents, Alvin and Marguerite Alexander, his sister Katherine and his dear wife Susan.
There will be a celebration of life in the near future.
