It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Gerry LeGassie, age 71, at the Gable Lodge on May 16, 2021. He was the son of the Leo and Barbara (LeGassie) and is predeceased by his parents and his grandson Tom.

Gerry is survived by his two beloved kids Christina (Chris) and Mark (Stephanie); his grandsons Taylor, Sam and John and granddaughters Gabby and Willow; sisters Linda (Len) and Ann (Paul) and brother Gary (Elizabeth) and many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews. 

Family and friends will always remember Gerry’s quick wit, ‘Gerry-rigging’ solutions, appetite (except carrots!) but most of all he was the king of the dad jokes. He loved going on long drives, playing pool, watching and reading sci-fi movies (except Star Wars!), visiting with family and always wore his trusty fedora hat, trucker leather wallet on a chain, and work clothes even in retirement. He will be deeply missed, never forgotten and we will continue to use his favorite Gerry-ism to make the grandkids keep groaning for years to come. 

Arrangements are under the care and supervision of Jones Family Funeral Centre, 70 Church Street, Amherst (902-667-8777).  Honouring Gerry's wishes cremation has taken place.  There are to be no services at this time.  The family will have a celebration of life at a later date when we are able to gather safely. 

For those who wish, the family suggests memorials to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or to the charity of your choice.

Sharing of memories and condolences may be sent to the family by visiting the online memorial at or through the Jones Family Funeral Centre Facebook Page.
