Gerald H. Vaughan
Apr. 30, 1930 – Dec. 14, 2016
Sadly and unexpectedly we’ve lost a very special man. Jerry is survived by his loving wife, Stella, his brother Wes, sister Vicky, many nieces and nephews, as well as great, and great-great, nieces and nephews. Everyone loved him and enjoyed spending time with Uncle Jerry (JJ) because he was always so happy and fun to be around. He was always very light hearted and loved to tease you.
Jerry was predeceased by his parents (Rose & Edward), 4 brothers (Wilfred, Harold, Henry & Bud) sister, Pearl and great niece, Shannon. Jerry worked for CP Rail for 35 years until his retirement in 1986. He had a passion for cutting wood and building things and participated in many sports such as curling, golfing, hockey, snowmobiling and waterskiing. Curling by far was his main passion in life to play or watch. He won 5 gold medals in the Senior Curling Championships, many victories and trophies in hockey, waterskiing still in his 70’s and just last week was on the ice at the Chase curling club. Not once did he ever say no to someone wanting to go for a ski or tub ride. He cherished the time spent creating many memories with his family/friends at the Shuswap.
A celebration of life will be announced in the New Year and will be hosted by the Chase Curling Club. “You will be forever in our hearts”Print This Obituary & Condolences
