GERALD Jakovac “Jerry”
Passionate. Gentle. Kind. Generous. Hilarious.
Jerry began his life adventure on September 7, 1943 and left this world a better place on September 19, 2020.
He was the devoted husband to the Love of his Life, Karen (Kitzul) for over 56 years. Together, they dedicated their lives to their four daughters: Jeri Lynn Jakovac, Jodi Jakovac, Jani Preece, and Jennifer Parry. He loved his two sons-in-law, Craig Preece and Brian Parry.
Jerry’s title of “Papa” was by far the one he cherished most. He was the best friend and Papa to Carsen Parry, the loving Papa to his “Special Angel,” Ava Parry, and the extremely proud Papa of his “Buddy,” Dane Preece.
Jerry was loved by his two sisters, Rosaline Malette and Irene MacEachern and their families. He will also be missed by his loving Kitzul families. Jerry’s unconditional love, quick wit, and laughter will be missed by our entire family and all of those who were lucky enough to call him, Friend.
As were his wishes, there will not be a visitation or funeral. Stay tuned for a “great party” to be held at a later date.
To honour Jerry’s way of life, please lend a hand to someone in need and always tell the ones closest to you how much you love them.
