My condolences to the Lebbink families. I first met Jerry when we were riding the van to work at the Bruce Nuclear site in the eighties. He always had a great smile and was so proud of his family. Rest in peace Jerry.

Jerry was a great neighbor on Prince Charles Street.. Always a smile and a Hello, out working on his lawn or flower beds. His home was always well taken care of. Jerry and I went back and forth helping each other out. I remember putting a window sill in and he was there to help. Our condolences to all his family. Kevin and Joyce Dinneen
