Gerald Joseph (Jerry) Penney

Passed in: Kitchener, Ontario, Canada
Passed on: November 14th, 2017

It is with sadness that the family of Gerald Joseph Penney announces his passing in Kitchener, Ontario on Tuesday, November 14, 2017 after a short but courageous battle with cancer.
Jerry was a lifelong and active resident of Glace Bay and Marion Bridge, Nova Scotia.
Jerry was a retired employee of the Cape Breton Development Corporation. He was employed as a miner, a security officer, and as a member of mine rescue teams. During his time as member of the Security force, Jerry represented his peers as president of their CUPE union local. Jerry was a lively outdoorsman and an avid hunter. He enjoyed travel, especially when it involved visiting his extended family. Jerry and his wife, Catherine could often be seen with friends dancing on Saturday nights at the local seniors’ centers. He enjoyed life to the fullest!
Jerry was predeceased by his parents, Gerald and Marie Penney; brother, Gary Penney; sister, Carol Cullen, and sister, Julie Campbell. He is survived by his wife, Catherine; his daughters, Sherry MacDonald (Bernard) and Christina Brean; his sons, Brian and Robert Penney (Kori) and his sister, Diane Francis. Jerry’s six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren will miss him dearly.
The family of Gerald would like to thank the many family members and who have reached out to us during this most sad time. We are truly touched.
Visitation will be on Tuesday, November 28, 2017 from 6 to 8 p.m. at T. J. Tracey Cremation & Burial Specialists, 370 Reserve St., Glace Bay, Nova Scotia.
A funeral mass will be held at St. Ann's Church Glace Bay Nova Scotia at 10 a.m. on Wednesday November 29th with burial to follow. A remembrance reception will be held at T. J. Tracey Cremation & Burial Specialists following the service.
