Greening, Gerald Douglas – Age 63, of Upper Musquodoboit. Born in Port Blandford, N.L., Gerald passed away May 1, 2018, surrounded by his loved ones in Colchester East Hants Health Centre, Truro, after a short but courageous battle with colon cancer.
Gerald is survived by his loving partner, Linda Combden; daughter, Marsha Thibert (Randy); brother, Jack; sisters, Linda (Bill) Bradshaw, Nellie (Jim) Abbott, and other immediate and extended family. Gerald was predeceased by his parents; brother, Len; sister, Shirley.
Gerald had a love for the outdoors and spent the majority of his working years at the Halifax Dockyard aboard the Listerville. He could always be found tinkering at one project or another, unearthing new dirt with his tractor or working away at next season’s wood. Gerald was always there to help a friend or lend a hand when needed.
Cremation has taken place. A funeral service will be held Friday, May 4, at 2 p.m. in Sharon Presbyterian Church, Dean, with Mary Jo Harrison officiating. Family burial will follow at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or a charity of your choice.
Arrangements are under the direction of Arimathea Funeral Cooperative, Upper Musquodoboit.
