HILLIARD, Gerald William
December 9, 2012
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Husband, Dad "Papa" and friend after a sudden and brief illness. He will dearly be missed by his loving wife Heidi, son Kevin (Nancy), daughters Charlie (Mike) and Lynne (Orville) as well as his cherished grandchildren Jeffrey, Bronwyn, Ryan and Heidi, seven great- grandchildren, sisters Geraldine (Lou), Rita (Raymond), brother Ron, his nieces and nephews and many dear friends. He lived a full and rich life. He will lovingly be remembered as the life of the party AKA "Andy" or "Mr.Bojangles" with his songs, guitar playing and joke telling. He was "King of the BBQ." He enjoyed fishing, golf and road trips. His unwavering devotion to his family created many fun moments and fond memories that will live forever in our thoughts and hearts. Thanks for being you, "Pops," we love you. Gerry's wishes are to be cremated. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Special thanks to Dr Alandro Quayle, Dr Tammy-Lynn Wojcik, and all the staff on 5 North at the Chilliwack General hospital for your excellent care, support and compassion. If friends so desire, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of B.C. or the Alzheimer's Society of B.C. Henderson's Funeral Home, in care of arrangements, 604-792-1344.
