Gerald Gordon ARMSTRONG
It is with heavy hearts that we would like to inform you of the passing of Gerald Armstrong on September 1, 2021, at Centre hospitalier de l’Université Laval (CHUL), Quebec City at the age of 91. He was predeceased by his loving wife Frances Johnston Armstrong in November 2020.
Gerald was the beloved father of Janet Emmott (Neil), Sheila Armstrong and Peter Armstrong (Helen). He leaves his cherished grandchildren: Lucy, Alex (Vanessa), Jennifer (Tristan), Sarah and James, as well as his great-grandchildren Fox and Lion. Gerald was the loving son of James Gordon Armstrong and Ethel LaSalla Cathcart as well as brother to the late Bernice Gallup (Milton), and the late Joyce Drouin (Philibert).
Gerald was a proud Mason, as well as a dedicated member of Trinity Church (Sainte-Foy). Some of his happiest moments were spending time with family and friends outdoors by a lake where he could fish, ski and snowmobile. Golfing and playing bridge became his passion after his retirement from the CNR in 1988. A proud moment for Gerald was his hole-in one, 7th hole at the Belvedere Golf Course, PEI. Gerald will be missed by many friends as well as his nieces and nephews.
A service will be held when appropriate, delayed by the pandemic. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Jersey Mills Cemetery in Saint- Georges de Beauce which Gerald helped maintain for many years.
