Gerald Francis Fitzpatrick

August 30, 1925 ~ May 2, 2018 (age 92)

It is with sadness and love that we say goodbye to Gerry, our father, grandfather, uncle and friend. Gerry left us on Wednesday, May 2 at the age of 92. Gerry is survived by his daughter Cathy Costello (John), his son Michael (Eileen) and his grandson Sean Costello. He is also survived by his nieces and nephews: Peggy Condon (Terry), Paul Voyer, Maretta Fitzpatrick (Danny), John Voyer (Lee), Therese Voyer (David), Caroline Henley and his stepchildren: Michelle Johnston (Rollie) and Shannon Flynn (Dale). He was predeceased by his first wife, Catherine Ethel, in July, 1984 and his second wife, Roz, in February, 2018 as well as all his siblings. Gerry led a full and active life. Gerry was born in Edmonton; the eldest of five siblings. He studied agriculture at the U of A and proudly served in the Royal Canadian Navy. He was a dedicated lifetime member of the Legion. He worked for many years at Hudson’s Bay Oil & Gas and retired from Home Oil. Widowed at age 58, he found love again; marrying at 77. Roz ensured that his retirement years were filled with a multitude of skiing, golfing, biking and camping adventures. Gerry was always up for a party and enjoyed celebrating life with family and friends. Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Pius X Catholic Church (2424 24 Ave NW) on Friday, May 11 at 11:00 a.m. Photos, memories and condolences may be shared with Gerry’s family through www.evanjstrong.com. We wish to extend our deepest appreciation to all the nurses and staff at Bethany Calgary for their kind and compassionate care of Gerry over the past two and a half years.
