Gerry moved from PEI on August 1970 where he worked for Tasco Roofing. He started his own roofing company B&R Roofing, established April of 1973. The business continued to grow with his brother Don to a successful company for the last 50 years. Gerry loved to collect old cars and spend time with family and friends. He was a kind person and touched everyones life in a positive way. He made many great friends and will be missed by all. If asked for advice, Gerry always had the right answers. Nobody could tell a joke like him, he would have you laughing before he started. Gerry will be forever remembered for his kind heart and giving nature.
