Gerald “Gerry” Kidd passed away peacefully after a sudden illness with his family at his side in Regina General Hospital on July 19, 2018.
Gerry was born in Regina, Saskatchewan to Emily and Ross Kidd. He was raised in Regina. Following school he moved to Winnipeg with his first wife Dianna and worked with CP Rail. They returned to Saskatchewan where Gerry worked with Downey Construction. Crystal and Jason joined the family in 1970 and 1973. Gerry then started his long career with SaskPower in 1975. His time with Sask Power brought with it many long and lasting friendships and much joy, memories and good times. He retired from Sask Power in 2002. He was pulled out of retirement in 2014 to work with Maxim Energy which he loved – it had him back in his element inspecting poles and around “the crew” again.
After the death of his first wife, Gerry was fortunate to find his second partner in life, Judy, and an extended family that he loved as his own. Life was filled with grandkids, friends, step kids, step grandchildren, fishing, camping, fun and laughter. He was loved and respected by everyone who was fortunate to meet and know him.
Gerry is predeceased by his mother and father, Emily and Ross, and his first wife, Dianna (nee Faul). He is survived by his partner, Judy, his daughter Crystal (Allan), son Jason (Tracy) grandkids Tre, Lexi, Josh and Justin, sister Sharon (Bob) and step kids Carla (Shawn) and Michael, step grandkids Grace, Claire, Brynn, Bailey, Logan, and Charlotte and many nieces, nephews, cousins and close friends that are considered family.
A Celebration of his Life will be held at Christie’s in Yorkton, Saskatchewan on Wednesday, July 25 at 2 p.m. followed by a gathering at the family home that we hope to see everyone attend.
Donations in lieu of flowers can be made to STARS Air Ambulance. The family wish to thank our neighbours, first responders, the STARS crew and all the hospital staff who cared for him and made it possible for our family to be by his side.
