Gerald Michael Baresco

January 03, 1943 –
August 20, 2020
Gerald "Gerry" Michael Baresco passed away on August 20, 2020 at the age of 77, with his wife Georgina by his side.

Gerry was born in Weyburn, Sask,. and was raised in Medicine Hat, AB. At fifteen Gerry began working for Safeway as a grocery clerk, working his way up to Store Manager until he retired in 1997 after 40 years with the company. During these years, he was an avid curler, and enjoyed snowmobiling in the winter and summers at Wasa Lake with his family. Upon retirement, Gerry and Georgina relocated from Calgary to Windermere, B.C., to a new home that Gerry built. He began volunteering in the community and was involved with many projects which earned him the ‘The Area F Volunteer of the Year’ in 2006. Gerry loved living in the valley taking advantage of the golfing, hiking, and boating. He also enjoyed travelling including many trips to Phoenix, Mexico, and Maui. The trip of a lifetime was Italy in 2010, especially the Barbaresco region, where he enjoyed many glasses of the local wine. Gerry had a passion for cars, especially from the 50’s and 60’s and that love carried on throughout his life. One of his favourite pastimes was sitting on the deck admiring Chisel Peak with his many great friends and family, a glass of Crown and Coke and a toast to a great life.

Gerry is survived by his wife Georgina, daughter Janine, sister Jean, brother Dennis, grandchildren Hart and Gage, and brother in law Randy (Cathy) and Monte (Rita) and their families.
He was predeceased by son Kevin, his parents Mike and Rose and brother in law Ken.

Gerry will be dearly missed for his laughter, sense of humour and mischievous nature.

A special thank you to the care team at Columbia House and Dr. Page.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Services. Condolences for the family can be offered at:
