Jack Russel Gerow

GEROW, Jack Russel - 1934 - 2018 We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Jack Russel Gerow on November 28, 2018. Jack was born in Tillsonburg on January 19, 1934 the son of Jim and Mary Gerow. He was predeceased by his loving wife and best friend Joan Gerow (October 2015). Much loved Dad to John (Lorraine), Allen (Paula) and Donna. Incredibly proud and loving Grandpa to Kyle (Casey), Emma (Andrew), Liam, Luke, Kiara, Jason, Joshua, Amber-lynn, Ricky, Christian, Brookelynn, and Makaelynn. Jack leaves behind his sister Donna McKenney (John) and his wonderful Aunt Betty (Dodd) who has visited Dad every day since Mom passed away three years ago and has been our rock through many difficult weeks. Jack worked for the Royal Bank his entire career and was posted to many different cities throughout Ontario while raising our family. This was always seen as an adventure for Dad and the entire family. He returned back to his hometown of Tillsonburg with Mom to retire. His happiest days were always when family and especially grandkids visited. His grandkids were his love and joy and he always made time for them. He was a great husband, father, grandfather, friend and neighbours and will be missed by everyone that knew him. Love you Dad! Special thanks to the wonderful nurses and doctors on the 2nd floor at Tillsonburg Hospital who took great care of Dad in his final days. We appreciate everything you did for our family.

Dear John, Lorraine, Kyle and Emma,

Sending you love and condolences on the passing of your much loved Dad and Grandpa. I have memories of Jack from Charlotte Court days and remember him as quite a lovely guy. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time. Xo

Donna, John and Allen... I'm so sorry to hear of your Father's passing. He was another "Redfern" parent that would take care of us kids. Whether it was driving us to hockey or taking us out on the snow machines, he was always there for us. Thinking of you guys at this sad time.
