August 18, 1958 – September 23, 2020
at the age of 62 years
Jerry will be deeply missed in the world. Jerry was an easy going, generous fellow with a great sense of humour. You could drop him into a group of strangers and before long they would all be friends.
Jerry married Lisa, the love of his life and best friend, in 1981. They were married for 39 years. He was proud of his sons Nathan and Colin and loved spending time with their families. The birth of his granddaughters brought him great joy.
Jerry grew up in Shoreacres, son to Anne and George Soukeroff. He was the third child of four children. In his youth he went to school in Castlegar, participating in the Doukhobor Choir and many sports teams. Upon graduating from Selkirk College in Electronics Technology, Jerry started his career with Xerox Canada and retired after 39 years. In 1985 Jerry and his family moved from Prince George to Salmon Arm and found their home. For the last 25 years, Jerry and his family have made many memories in Bucerias, Mexico. As a family they also enjoyed dirt biking, boating, traveling, kayaking, and gardening. Jerry was a loving husband, father, grandpa, brother, uncle, and friend.
It is very sad to hear about Jerry’s passing. He was the best technician Xerox ever had. He was knowledgeable and quick when he attack those machines, but the best part of his visits was Jerry’s sense of humour. We always enjoyed the office banter when he was around, in fact I think sometimes the machines were misaligned on purpose so we could have a visit from Jerry. Seeing him walk through the door always brought a smile to our staff.
Met Jerry and Lisa at the Legion.
Lots of fun memories!
HUGS for you Lisa and your family.
Lisa and family,
I met Jerry through darts. When I first spoke with him over the phone I thought ” no one is this open, relaxed and welcoming”. Well I was wrong. He was truly a fine fellow and will be sadly missed. Our thoughts are with you.

We are saddened to hear of Jerry’s passing, we are very sorry for your loss.
So sad to hear of Jerry’s passing. He was our go to guy when anything went wrong with our Xerox equipment at SLGH. He always had a wonderful smile for you when ever you ran into him around town. I’ll miss that smile and the updates on family that he was so proud of. All the best to you at this very hard time.
Lisa, our condolences to you and your family. We fondly remember the trip to San Francisco and Jerry’s good humour and funny hat. He was a great guy!

We are shocked and saddened to hear of the loss of Jerry. Our sincere condolences to you, Nathan and Colin as well as the extended family. Jerry was a great guy to work with for over 20 years, we were all able to attend many special events with Xerox and outside of the company we have many great memories of Jerry and yourself at various gatherings of friends and family.
Jerry will be missed so much by all that knew him.
Our thoughts are with you at this time.
My deepest sympathy on the passing of Jerry. I was saddened to hear this news! I grew up in Shoreacres and will always remember Jerry for his cheerful, friendly, and kind personality! May Jerry Rest In Peace in God’s Heavenly Kingdom!
We grew up under the same umbrella of love in Shoreacres. We had some great laughs throughout the years. May peace, love and courage surround family and friends as you all wade through this tragic transition in your lives. May the angels carry Jerry swiftly and pain free to his next destination on his journey. Much love to you all.
So sorry to Jerry’s family and friends. My condolences.

My dearest Lisa, Nathan, Colin, as well as Jerry’s extended family, and his brother, Dan, Sister’s Evelyn and Vickie. This came as such a shocker to me and my family. Sending everyone my love and condolences. Jerry was indeed a wonderful person with a fantastic sense of humour. I was definitely lucky to have been able to grow up in the same neighbourhood of Shoreacres and new Jerry from the day that I was first born. He was always so kind and caring. I remember the days that he and Lisa would come over to my parent’s place in Salmon Arm for our small Doukhobor prayer meetings that we had. I will miss him dearly. Our Creator has gained another wonderful soul. May Jerry be resting in God’s Heavenly Kingdom always and be reunited once again with his parents and other friends and relatives. God Bless each and every one of you! Much love to each and every one of you! May you all find the strength to move forward and just remember all the wonderful times you all had with him as that is what he would want you to do! Don’t be angry with him for leaving because he truly will never leave any of the people who’s lives he touched as he will always be in your hearts and well as mine! Веная Памить!!!
So incredibly sad to hear this.
A truly wonderful man.
Deepest condolences to all.
