On Friday November 20th, 2020 surrounded by those who loved him, Gerald (Gerry) Callahan from Saint-Lazare, Quebec passed away peacefully at the age of 79. Gerry will be sadly missed by his wife of almost 54 years, Elizabeth (Betty) Shufler and his children, Brent (Janice) and Brenda. Loving grandfather of Laura, Brian, Julia, Jessica and Breanna. Gerry was born in Corner Brook, Newfoundland and was predeceased by his father Bart, mother Louise and sister Joan.
Gerry was a well-respected math teacher at Pius X, where he met multiple life long friends and future golf buddies, including Kevin Marciniak and the late Pat Ferraro and Frank Nash. Life long friends, Kevin and Mary O’Connor shared many family milestones together. He was blessed with an amazing group of family and friends who put up and encouraged his antics and humor.
We are grateful for the excellent care Gerry received from so many people including Anna, Tamara, Dr. Goh, Dr. Welik and Wanda just to name a few of his caregivers that made his journey easier.
If you wish to donate, please consider a donation to NOVA Hudson or a charity of your choice.
Due to pandemic restrictions, a Celebration of Life and internment will be held when public gatherings can be done safely. Gerry’s final resting place will be in the Field of Honour in Pointe-Claire, Quebec.
