Gerald Gordon Chwelos

October 6, 2020
The world lost a kind and gentle man on Oct. 6, 2020. Our cherished brother and uncle, Gerry had a way of moving through the world quietly and effectively, always treating those around him with dignity, respect, and generosity.
In the past decade, his calling was helping folks find a home of their own… and he was dedicated to making sure they felt comfortable, secure, and empowered in every step of that journey. He treated community service endeavours with the same patient and profound commitment to excellence.
Gerry was middle born among six kids and rose to that role as an equanimous and even-tempered brother. A steady worker in management and Real Estate, he also worked in the telecom field in Prague for a time. He moved through this world with an uncommonly profound integrity, and this quality was loved and appreciated by both his clients and his family.
We are grateful that this sweet, gentle, and generous soul was a part of our lives. Of the six kids, he was the one which Mom greeted as ‘Sunshine’.
The family would like to hold a celebration of Gerry’s life at some point in the future when such gatherings are possible. Condolences may be offered at
We know that Gerry touched many lives with his sweet sincerity, and would love to hear the stories and memories you have of him.
If you would like to honour Gerry’s memory, please plant a tree or some early flowers to mark his February birthday. This would have touched him dearly.
Rest well, Sunshine brother. You walked softly on this earth, and we love and miss you dearly.
