He volunteered in many Habitat for Humanity builds in Toronto and Scarborough as well as delivering star boxes during the Christmas season. His latest venture was distributing McDonald’s cards to the homeless in shelters downtown. Cremation has taken place. A service to celebrate Gerry’s life will be held at a later date.

Gerald was a special cousin in that his father was my father's brother and his mother was my mother's sister. He was also special in his generosity and his friendly and gentle nature. I only wish that we could have been closer friends but our paths rarely crossed. My condolences to Judith.

Gerry had the kindest heart, biggest smile, and most boisterous laugh. He is known to the family through his generous volunteer work with the Lions Foundation (over many many years). The Milne family will always remember Gerry fondly and with love. Keeping you in our hearts dear friend!
