In Loving Memory
Born in Weston, Ontario to Mary and James Sweeney. The youngest of 11 children. Husband to Donna Montgomery Sweeney and married since September 28, 1963. Father to Elaine (Dave) and Paul (Kimberley). Grandfather to Brandon (Laura) and Britney (Trevor) and great grandfather to Oaklynn. Survived by his brother Albert. For more than 36 years Gerald worked as a Transport Truck Mechanic. Gerald actively played hockey within the Beeton, Tottenham and Schomberg communities. On Friday January 11th, Gerald passed away suddenly at South Lake Hospital in Newmarket.

Thank you to the three emergency room nurses for taking good care of Gerald in his final hours and to Mackenzie Place in Newmarket for his long-term care.

A Celebration of Gerald’s Life will take place Saturday January 19, 2019 at Rod Abrams Funeral Home 1666 Tottenham Rd. Tottenham 905-936-3477, with visitation from 1pm until a time of spoken Remembrances at 2:30pm. In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made in Gerald’s memory to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Old Irish Blessing…
May the road rise-up to meet you,
may the wind always be at your back,
may the sun shine warm upon your face and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
