Wayne Gerow

December 6, 1938 - November 23, 2013


Remembering  A. Wayne Gerow
1938 – 2013

It is with great sadness that the family of Wayne Gerow announce his passing.

Wayne was born on December 6, 1938 to Edith and Henry Gerow of Havelock, Ontario and peacefully passed away on Saturday November 23, 2013 at the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital in Trail, BC. Lovingly remembered by his wife of 54 years, Theresa (Fleury), and their 4 children, Christopher (Helen Pelkey), Karen (Brian Radnor), Katherine (Robert Hamilton) and Connie. Greatly missed by 9 grandchildren, Dallas, Ali, Chris, Angela, Karena, Brianna, Clinton, Kayla and Kelton. Also survived by siblings and their families; Laurence, Barbara, Elva, Doug, David and Mary.
Wayne grew up in Havelock where he met Theresa while working at a grocery store/restaurant/gas bar at 14 years of age, where they continued until he turned 18 and started his mining career. They were married in 1959. The family increased 1961 – 1968, as did his love of mining which carried them across Canada. He left mining to become owner/operator of the Eldorado Market in New Denver, BC in 1991. Coming full circle, Wayne and Theresa retired from the store (Eldorado) in 2004.

He was a historical society enthusiast and contributing member to the regional district and local community. He was a dedicated chairman and member of the Zion United Church family. In 2012 he celebrated his 50th year of membership in the Havelock Masonic Lodge. He loved fishing, hunting, socializing and especially rediscovering many old mine sites in the mountains of the Silvery Slocan. Music was a passion which allowed him to share his life and experiences with many. He was an amazing Husband, Father, Pappa and friend. His laughter and generosity of spirit will be carried on through his legacy.

Services will be held in Silverton, BC and Havelock, ON.

Thank you all for surrounding us with your loving support and prayers. Sincere appreciation to all the nurturing staff in the renal unit at Kootenay Boundary Hospital, you became family members over the past years, Wayne loved you.
