Gerald Ronald George Burgess
In loving memory of our Gerald Ronald George Burgess. He passed away July 2nd, 2020, in Surrey Memorial Hospital.
He will be sadly missed by his wife Theresa, his children; Trina (Chris), Jason (Nicole), Travis (Angeleen), and Cheryl (Chad), grandchildren; Cassandra, Kira, Jacob, Cainen, Jordana, Declan, James, Gage, Kole, and Jaelynn. His sister Donna (Rob), and Uncle Sam (Mabel). Sister-in-laws Maureen (Lloyd) and Gloria. Brother-in-Law Charlie (Myrt). Also, by many nieces, nephews, cousins, and co-workers.
We all know and loved Gerry’s tough exterior, but what we will miss most is the soft spot he had for all his grandchildren. We are so sad that they will not have him around as they are growing up, but we know he will be watching down on them from above.
We all miss you and love you so very much. You are in God’s hands now, rest in peace. Always and forever, to the moon and back.
God saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be
So he put His arms around you
And whispered "Come to me."
With tearful eyes we watched you
As you slowly slipped away
And though we loved you dearly
We couldn't make you stay.
Your golden heart stopped beating
Your tired hands put to rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
