May 28, 1941-Feburary 17, 2016
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Jerry at the Victoria General Hospital – Victoria, BC on February 17, 2016. Jerry was born in Minnedosa, Manitoba on May 28, 1941 to William and Phyllis Riddell.
In his youth, he was a “Queen Scout” and always was a straight “A” student. He enjoyed his job at Crown Zellerbach paper mill and worked there for over 30 years. One of his passions was volunteering at the Campbell River Genealogy Society for many years and also anything electronic.
He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Linda, his son John (Lori), his daughter Judy, stepdaughter Kim (Marven); grandchildren Brandon, Arianna, Parker, Richard (Tamie) and Jeremy; great-grandchildren Kason, Jayden and Elianna, ex-wife Elizabeth Riddell, sister Jean Lee, stepfather Jack Gibbons, aunt Florence Haywood, nephews and cousins. Predeceased by his parents, stepmother Edna Cooper, brother-in-law Richmond Lee and many aunts and uncles.
He will be laid to rest beside his father in Minnedosa, Manitoba at a later date. As an expression of sympathy, donations in Jerry’s name may be made to the Campbell River Genealogy Society.
A man of his unique character will never be forgotten.
