Obituary of Gerald Albert Hope

Please share a memory of Gerald to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Gerry passed away peacefully at the age of 88. His heart was broken when his wife Betty of 66 years, passed away on November 14, 2023.

Gerry was born in Maidstone, Saskatchewan on May 13, 1935. He and Betty were married May 8, 1957 in Invermere where they raised their daughters Kim and Tammie, as well as son David.


   Over his lifetime, Gerry worked as a contractor, a mechanic, an electrician and finally he started his own business in trucking and excavating.


  Gerry played baseball in his younger years, he snowmobiled with his wife and many friends, and also played old timers hockey. Many trips were taken to Hawaii where Gerry and Betty played multiple games of golf - a highlight in his life.


He volunteered for several years at the Rockies wood lot where he faithfully worked daily to support the hockey team.


   Papa will be dearly missed by daughters Kim (Jan), Tammie (Steve), grandchildren Melissa (Jason), Matthew (Leesa), Amanda (Neil), Ashley (Ben), James (Trish), Andrew (Tanya), great-grandchildren Brennen (Shayla), Ayla, Lilie, Isabel, Hunter, Wyatt, Leo, Forest, Rebecca, Jasper, Marcus, Liam, Maisie, sister June (Willie) and nieces Jana (Willie), Mori (Corwin).


Gerry was predeceased by his wife Betty, son David, parents Albert and Grace, great-Grandson Gavin.


A service for Gerry will be held at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, December 13 at Lake Windermere Alliance Church.


In lieu of flowers, please donate to Columbia House through EKFH, in memory of Gerry.
