Gerald (Jerry) Aten, age 78, of Campbell River BC, passed away on Monday, February 25, 2019. He was born and raised in Salmon Arm, BC.
Jerry attended UBC for several years and joined the dance club there. He sure knew how to work that dance floor! In 1966, he married Wilma Summerfelt (Picket).
Jerry is survived by his son, Raymond (Jenette), stepsons Ron (Judy), Rick (Karen), and stepdaughter Laurinda Rich (Calvin), sisters Mary Rollier and Edwina Kurta (John), and sister-in-law Jeanne Aten. He had the pleasure of having 11 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren.
He is now resting alongside of his wife Wilma, parents Edna and Bruce Aten, and brother William (Bill) Aten.
Jerry will be missed by everyone who touched his life. A special thank-you to all the amazing staff at Evergreen Seniors Home in Campbell River.
