It is with immense sadness that we announce the passing of Gerard William Stolk of Fort Macleod, AB on January 22, 2022. He was 60 years of age.
Gerard was born on January 8, 1962 in Fernie, BC to parents John and Inez Stolk. He grew up to be a hardworking young man who went on to be a skilled heavy equipment operator working mainly in construction.
Gerard enjoyed going hunting and fishing for much of his life. An accident about fifteen years ago left him unable to continuing going, but it didn’t change his wonderful sense of humour and love for people. He could usually be found laughing and joking, and was particularly good with children. Gerard cherished time spent with his family and friends, and he will live on in their hearts.
He leaves behind the loves of his life, his daughter, Jessie (Brandon) Williamson and grandchildren, Hayden and Emree. Also left to mourn his passing and celebrate his life is his father, John (Margaret) Stolk; his brothers, Rodney (Jolene) Stolk and Paul (Shari) Rose; his step-sisters, Tina Fujimagari and Lisa (Tim Gaydos) Jones; his extended family and many friends, especially, Mary, Patsy, Gerald, Darcie and Jamie.
