Predeceased by his parents Clarence and Eva Liddle, sisters Bernice Fleming and Margaret Whittal and brother Robert. Being a very accomplished fisherman and along with his brother built and re-constructed several fishing boats over the years. Jerry always needed water under his feet at work or play. Having travelled around the world on many trips he loved the family cottage in Muskoka the best. Being a man of few words he always got his point across with a look or a hand motion. Never being a good speller he sure could add when the fish tubs were unloaded. A good day on the lake always put a smile on his face. Using his own words….. “I’ve done my thing, it’s time for the younger generation to take over.”
