With great sadness the family of Gerald announces his passing on April 6, 2017 after a courageous battle with cancer. He was born July 24, 1935 to Gladys and Elmer Shields. For over 30 years he resided in Asquith on his farm. He originally raised quarter horses and later years cattle. Gerry was a kind, witty man always willing to help neighbours and friends. Left to mourn his passing are his partner Myrtle, his sister Vivian (Jack) Meier and his two brothers, Dwain (Marion) and Dwight (Arlene), his sister-in-law Helen Shields and numerous nieces and nephews. Gerry was predeceased by his Parents and his brother Morley in 2015. At Gerald’s request, there will be no service. The family would like to thank the people for all the calls and visits to Gerry during his illness.
