DURANT, Gerald Blake October 1, 1932 - August 2, 2006 Following a three-year battle with cancer, fought with courage and dignity, Gerry went home to be with his Saviour. He is survived by his friend, loving wife and life partner of 47 years, Dorothy (Fisk) and by his children Dave (Judy), Joanne and Barb (Kevin). He is also survived by his eight grandchildren of whom he was incredibly proud: Sharlyn and Deanne, Glenn, Adam, Paul and Matthew, and Amy and Erin and also by his brothers Doug (Kay), Donald (Rev. Ann) and sisters Bev (Dave) and Donna Drummond. Predeceased by his parents Blake and Sydney (McCambly) his brother Norman (Linda) and sister Margaret Steele (Byron). Many cousins, nieces, nephews, and grand nieces and nephews also survive him. Gerry's career took him through varying positions with Defense Research Board, Treasury Board, Foreign Affairs, and the Canadian Coast Guard. After retirement he spent a further 12 years on a part-time basis with Hulse Playfair and McGarry. His lifetime of strong faith and dedication to his Church, taking part in and leading many groups in Christian Leadership was, for him, his most gratifying blessing for himself and others. We all will miss his welcoming heart, commitment to others and steadfast loyalty to family and friends.
