On Tuesday, April 9, 2019, our loving husband, father, Grandpa, Papa, son, sibling and friend, Gerry, passed away at the age of 61 after a courageous battle with cancer. Gerry is survived by his wife of 35 years, Janet and by his 2 children and five grandchildren: daughter Jerilyn, granddaughters Kaynyah, Tonika, Neayvah and grandson Mikai; and son Ryan (Payton) and grandson Wyatt. Gerry is also survived by his father Maurice Creelman; his brothers; Ron (Bev) and Gene (Wendy) and sisters: Gayleen Creelman (Dan) and Shirley Maruk (Colin); mother-in-law Ione Senyk; sisters-in-law Wendy Jewell (Glen), Cheryl Tracey (Seamus) and Karyn Harper (Wade) and brothers-in-law Bob Senyk (Liz) and Kevin Senyk (Roxanne) and numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his mother Alfreda Creelman and step-mother Joyce Creelman and father-in-law Steve Senyk.
While our family is profoundly devastated by his loss, we gratefully remember a kind hearted, fiercely loyal, loving man, who cared deeply about his family and especially his beloved grandchildren, who gave him such joy. For those of us who were fortunate to know Gerry, we could count on a friend who would stand up to the plate and literally do anything for you.
As per Gerry’s wishes, there will be a Celebration of Life at 2:00 pm, April 13th, 2019 at the Cardiff Hall in Cardiff, Alberta.
One never really dies when they live on in the memories of those left behind.... always loved, always missed, always remembered, our Gerry.
