Hall, Gerald Rutherford

December 5, 1938 - March 21, 2019


The community has lost a cheerful, loving person, March 21, 2019.

Gerald Rutherford Hall (Gerry), born Dec. 5, 1938, in Vancouver, B. C., to parents John Rutherford & Myrtle Hall, passed into God’s arms.

While childhood was in Woodfibre, where his father worked for B.C. Pulp & Paper, he later, attended Dunbar’s Lord Byng High School, before pursuing a career in sales.

His joys in retired life included playing cribbage, scrabble, lawn bowling, telling jokes, family visits to Alberta & Nova Scotia, chatting with all in his midst.  Organizing Jazz Vespers at Northwood United Church, Surrey, fulfilled his passion for his love of music.

Mourned by his beloved wife, Audrey; daughters, Andrea May, Alison Pickrell (Alan); & son, Graham (Shelley); Grandchildren: Martina, Cameron, Ryan, Chelsey and Sterling.

Sister in law, Janet Burland (Norm), Georgetown, Ontario; brother in law, Jim Aitken (Kathy) Bedford, Nova Scotia and special cousins, Dorothy and Barbara Aitken, N.S.; many cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends in British Columbia, Alberta and in Eastern Canada.

A Celebration of Life will be on Sunday, May 5, 2019 at 2:00 pm. Northwood United Church, Surrey, B. C.  Rev. Scott Turnbrook officiating.
