After many wonderful adventures, Jerry passed away peacefully at home February 27, 2016 with his family by his side.
Jerry was born in Singapore and spent his first few years in Australia and England. In 1960 he made the big move to Canada on a 3 year scholarship to UBC where he majored in Geology. His love for “banging on rocks” lead him to the West Kootenays where he met his wife of 45 years Maureen, with whom he has two children Jeremy and Jennifer.
Jerry became a teacher in 1976 and was soon know as Mr. Tickner the English teacher. He loved a good Rugby game, scuba diving and had a wonderful passion for playing the piano. He played 12 yrs for the Cariboo Men’s Choir. Jerry was also involved with the Child Development Centre, where he was Board Chairman for over 25 years.
Most of all Jerry was a family man. He loved his family dearly and always had the most wonderful stories to tell his adored grandchildren. He was loved by many and will be greatly missed by all.
Thank you so much to everyone who cared for Jerry and his family with flowers, food and hugs.
