Rolph, Gerald passed away on July 22, 2010.

Dad was born in Chemainus in 1927. He will be greatly missed by his loving, caring wife and best friend, Margaret of 56 years; sons: Guy, Glenn and Grant; daughters-in-law, Wendy and Roxanne; grandchildren: Ben and Brenna; sisters Joan and Deanna; and many cousins, nieces and nephews.

Gerald was a straightforward, honest and hardworking man. He was always at his best when he was in his “Office in the Woods,” working as a faller or on his tree farm business or hunting and fishing.
