THOMAS, Gerald Marvyn "Gerry" passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday, January 15, 2020 at the age of 80. Beloved husband of Violet Vince-Thomas, lovingly remembered by his children Susan Thomas (Manny Rodrigues), Christine Hodgkinson (Jeff), David Thomas (Michelle), Teddi Thomas (Greg Martinow) and Erik Thomas. Gerry will be sadly missed by his 11 grandchildren. Predeceased by sister Lorry Bradley. He will be greatly missed by his faithful chocolate lab, Tanner. Gerry was a devoted family man who loved the outdoors - cottage life, canoeing, hiking, camping and gardening. He was a member of the Bancroft Horticultural Society. He was known for his endless list of projects and his passion for chocolate chip cookies and red wine. He retired in 2016 after a successful 40 year career with Hussmann. Friends are invited to pay their respects at the McCLEISTER FUNERAL HOME, 495 Park Road N., Brantford on Thursday, January 23, 2020 from 12-1 p.m. A Memorial service will follow in the Chapel at 1 p.m. A Celebration of Life will be held on June 21st at Faraday Trout Lake for lake friends and neighbours. Details will be shared in the spring. As an expression of sympathy, memorial contributions may be sent to Ontario Parks or the Peterborough Regional Health Centre Foundation (Cancer Care).

Gerry was like another grandfather to my children Moera and Phineas and a good friend to me. RIP

It was my pleasure to meet Gerry through the Bancroft Horticultural Society and discover that we both spent many years in the Brantford/Paris area, Brantford being my hometown. Gerry brought a labour of love to our Millennium Park garden in Bancroft and also shared many ideas for horticultural club activities which he enjoyed from his previous horticultural association I believe in Paris, ON. A very lovely gentleman. Sincere condolence to his family.
