Under his leadership, the company grew to become Alberta's largest pest control company. In 1997, he was a recipient of the Great Albertan Award. Gerry "wore his faith on his sleeve" and shared his personal testimony at every opportunity. His greatest joy was to help others, and especially young people.

He was also an active supporter of Operation Eyesight Universal, and established a scholarship for students with financial needs at Rocky Mountain College.

He was instrumental in developing the Calgary West Rotary Club's Cars 4 Kids Cancer car show and the club's long-time partnership with Lord Shaughnessy High School. Gerry was a true "friend of the friendless" who gave quiet, but unquestioning support to those facing difficult challenges. At a spontaneous "Wake" on February 23, over one-hundred-eighty friends came together to celebrate his life and share about the ways he had touched their lives. Gerry and Leslie loved to travel and shared many adventures with family and friends in distant places. His love for people was especially evident during weekends at the cabin at Pine Lake where Gerry and Leslie made everyone feel welcome and part of the family. Besides his loving wife Leslie, of thirty-one years, Gerry is survived by his mother Vera; brothers, John (Beth), Dan (Teresa); sister Judi; and nieces and nephews, Wendy (Neil), Jay (Tara), Rob, Michelle, Jennifer, and Greg.
