On behalf of Rich , Lyne and Terry we hope that you’ll find peace in his passing. 86 years on this earth was certainly a good life. I’m sure aunt Rita will be happy to see him. May he Rest In Peace!

Dear Lori and Janine,
It is with great sadness that Mike and I received word that your Dad had passed. Your Dad and Mom were like a second family to Mike, Sue and me. We have so many wonderful memories of the best neighbours anyone could ever have for over fifty years. We will never forget your kind, fun loving father.
Mike and Joyce

Very sorry to hear of uncle Gerry's passing,remembering him as a fun loving man (cucumber sandwiches) always welcoming and very kind. Regret because of distance not seeing him and his family more often. Condolences— Sharon Marcel and Family, June 3, 2022
My sincerest condolences to your family. Known as grumpy, his spirit lives on through the lives he touched and inspired. Never having the pleasure to meet this angel, hearing his voice on the phone daily when he would call Janine and Jakie was a cherished celebration by all. His voice would light up the room and make you feel supported. I am here in any capacity to support through every step and chapter of your lives. I love you all <3— dianne luca, June 2, 2022

Thinking of you,
Rest easy Mr Denney

Lori, Janine and Families,
I have so many great memories of visiting your parents during the summers with my mom and dad. Uncle Gerry loved to tease and I just adored him💕. He had a constant twinkle in his eye and a mischievous smile on his lips. He loved telling a good story and boy was he a very entertaining raconteur! Hugs to all of you. Keep your memories of him close and may they bring you comfort during this difficult time. Cousin Tamara
