Gerry's family will be remembering him privately.

Gerald Peter McKeon of Erieau passed away at home on Thursday September 13, 2018. Gerry was born 64 years ago to his late parents Peter & Verna (Meyers) McKeon. He will be forever missed by the love of his life, Joanne Adams and by his children Rhonda & Clem Bourgeois, Peter McKeon, Stacey Adams (Elvin), Brad Adams and Josh Adams (Kate). He was a loving grandfather to Beau, Bianca, Alexis, Jayden and Evan and brother to Gord & Arlene McKeon, Harold & Lori McKeon and Julie McKeon. Gerry will also be missed by his mother in law Jeannette Vidler and by Joanne’s siblings Lauraine & Jim Fennell, Scott & Patti Vidler and Brian & Heidi Vidler. Last but not least, Gerry will be missed by his fur friend Honey B.

Gerry was a kind and caring person who would stop whatever he was doing to help someone else. He lived life to the fullest every moment of every day, especially if those moments included his family or working on restoring his Camaro. He retired in 2010 after many years of working at Navistar. He will be missed.

It was Gerry’s wish that his family remember him privately.
