Obituary

It is with saddened hearts we announce the passing of our loving father Gerald Alvin Ruttan, age 92 on November 28th, 2022.  Jerry is the son of the late Donald and Jessie Ruttan.

Devoted father and best friend to his daughters Alison Davis (George) and Andrea Ruttan.  Much loved Poppy to his grandchildren Michael, Erin and Emily.  He will be forever missed.  Predeceased by his beloved wife of 62 years Valeria (nee Smith) (March 2020), his brother Allan Ruttan (March 2016) and his wife Terry (June 1995). Jerry will be missed by many nieces and nephews, and he will be always remembered by his many friends in the Sydenham Community.

He was actively involved in The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 496 for many years as well as the Harrowsmith Social and Athletic Club.

The family would like to thank all the staff of Providence Care Heritage 2 and the staff of Trillium Retirement Home for their wonderful care and compassion.  Thank you immensely to St. Elizabeth PSW’s Mary, Dana and Sandra. A big thank you to Dr. Marie Colantonio for being with us continuously during the last month.

In keeping with Jerry’s wishes, there will be a service held at the Trousdale Funeral Home, Sydenham on Thursday, December 8, 2022, at 3 p.m. with a luncheon following at the Sydenham Legion. In lieu of flowers, donations for those wishing may be made to For The Love Of Ferals, as Jerry had a special love for cats or The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 496 in Jerry’s memory.
