Obituary For Gerald Anthony Gouchie
Age 64, passed away suddenly & unexpectedly in Halifax at his home on Monday, July 4th 2022.
Gerald leaves behind 5 brothers; Percy, Garl, Timothy, Jimmy, & Johnny,
4 sisters; Glenda, Donna, Ann Marie, Pearl, his daughter Michelle Gouchie (son in law Shane), 4 beautiful grandchildren; Brooklynn (11), Miley (10), Kasey (10), Austin (8), & lots of nieces & nephews.
He was pre-deceased by his parents; Alice Theresa O’Brien, & Herbert James Gouchie, as well as his brother Steven Russel Gouchie, & his former wife; Debbie Lewis.
Gerald was the type of person who would give you the shirt off his back, he always helped you if he could. He was a lover of music & always had a radio on in the background. He also loved listening to his mother play the wooden spoons.
He played in the Bowlarama league with his late wife every Friday night in the 90’s. & also loved a good game of Super Mario on the Nintendo system.
Gerald loved spending time with family , especially his daughter, 4 grandchildren & his sister Glenda. He loved to swim & camp back in his day, & was always outside as much as possible.
He spent his last months seeing his daughter & grandchildren every second weekend. He always let the people around him, know he loved & cared for them any chance he got.
Anytime you would speak to Gerald on the phone, before he let you go, he would never say bye, or goodbye. It was always “bye for now” as if to indicate he will speak to you again soon.
So this isn’t goodbye, it’s “bye for now”.
A celebration of Gerald’s life will be arranged by his daughter at a later date.
Gerald is greatly loved & missed
