Jerry Krivsky

Date of Death: January 14, 2018



Jerry Krivsky passed on January 14, 2018 at Nakusp, BC.

He will be sorely missed by all of his family, his extended family and those he adopted as his family.

He is survived by his partner Nancy, his children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and his former wife Rose.  His parents and siblings predeceased him.

Born in Blairemore, AB of Czechoslovakian parents 81 years ago, Jerry moved to BC in the 1950’s.  He spent his teen years in Nelson, after which, he attended vocational college in Vancouver.  After several moves throughout BC and the Yukon, he eventually made his way back to Nelson for a few years before finding his paradise in Brouse in the early 1960’s.  Since then he has enjoyed many years of farming, hunting and especially fishing in the Kootenays and beyond.  In his later years he became accomplished in sausage making and smoking meats, trying to replicate his father’s secret recipes of old.  He was a jack of all trades and had many stories to tell of his life’s experiences.  He was blessed with many good friends who may very well repeat one of those stories for you.

The family really appreciates the care given to Jerry by the wonderful staff at the Arrow Lakes Hospital.  Special thanks to Dr. Pond and the very caring nurses.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the Arrow Lakes Hospital Foundation.

A celebration of life is planned for July, 2018.
