Dear Walsh family
In 1990 my husband and I asked our neighbor Mr. Cant for help in English Conversation and he new your father from lawn-bowling. So we started meeting your father on regular basis every Wednesday from 10.30 to 12 o’clock.
Gerald was a very well educate man. So we looked forward to every Wednesday. He told us about politics, English and Canadian history, and we read with him many books about English Classic literature. Because Gerald was fluent in German and other...

My favorite memory of Gerry is waiting for a Ferry in 1994, when we shared an imprompto snack from our cooler. Before that I only knew him as Lawn Bowls Cheif Umpire after that I knew him as the friendly down to earth man he really was. What a privledge! His family will have an abbundance of memories to enjoy and be proud of.
Sincerely Pat Harrison

I immigrated to Prince George at the same time as Gerry, Jean and family, teaching in the same school. When we all moved to Vancouver I spent many happy weekends staying in their family home where I was always welcome. During the five years I was in Canada it was Gerry I turned to for advice and intellectual companionship. We have met again only a few times but have kept in touch by post and email. I shall miss my dear friend's bright comments and cheery messages.
We can askk,...

Gerald Walsh was my mother's cousin and they were great friends all their lives. He was a lovely man and I remember him with great affection,

My condolences to the family....I first met Mr. (Gerald) Walsh in the very early 80's with his wife Jean through their daughter Sheila (who is a long time friend of mine). A very interesting man with a clear passion for education...he led a full life. He was full of life until very recently and everyone was welcomed into their home. My thoughts are with everyone as they now reconcile their loss. The memories of time spent in his home in White Rock, and vacations in Victoria, and the home...

I met Gerald a few years ago and he was simply a lovely gentleman. He always greeted me with a smile, a kind word and often a bowl of soup. He was a very easy person to like, and I grew very fond of him. The world will not be quite the same without him in it. Condolences to the family. My thoughts are with you.

I had the good fortune to meet Mr. Walsh on a few of his memorable visits to Victoria with his daughter Sheila. He was a very gentle, sweet man with a wonderful smile and a very easy way about him that always made you feel comfortable. He had a great sense of humour, a winning personality and was quick to tell a good story about his travels and his work. I was always amazed at his memory and attention to detail. The world was a much better place because of him.

My condolances...

We were lucky enough to meet Gerry during one of our early stays in Sun City, Arizona – as we are still living in the UK we clearly had immediate points of discussion with Gerry and we so enjoyed exchanging gossip about the “old Country” with him. He always displayed a lively and active mind together with a strong sense of humour.
He belonged to a generation that sacrificed so much during the War and they are all still greatly appreciated by many of us back in the UK. Gerry served in...

Gerald,my elder brother,always did every thing right whereas I always did everything wrongly! Like his father, he had a photographic memory which served him well all of his life. Love Frank
