Hildebrant; Gerald (Jed)

August 6, 1953 – August 29, 2014

Gerald “Jed” Hildebrant passed away peacefully August 29th from prostrate cancer. He is survived by his loving wife, Terry, children, Michael and Jaclyn and two grandchildren, Olivia and Connal. He is predeceased by his father Albert in 1980, mother Agnes in 2007, brothers Clarence in 2010 and Donald in 2005; sister Nancy in 2001.

Left to mourn are brothers Robert, David, Frederick, William (Dianne), Bruce (Maggie) and Richard (Cheryl) and his sister-in-law and brother-in-law Gail and Malcom. In addition Jed will be deeply missed by his adoptive family, Lorna Doehle and her children Laurie, Billy, Margot and Paul.

Jed was the most gentle, intuitive man and all that knew him valued his sense of humour and wisdom. Jed had varied careers including chef, bartender, real estate agent and kitchen and housekeeping at Chilliwack General Hospital. He loved golf, roosters, Venice, Kokanee, gardening and handyman projects where is incredible talent and artistic eye “always saw the vision.” But most of all he loved his family. To say he excelled at the father / grandfather role would be a huge understatement. Grandpa is watching out for us from above now. Thanks to Dr. Quentin Smith, Dr. Saul Goodman, Dr. Walia and Dr. Ron Bull. Special thank you to the staff at Chilliwack General Hospital and Cascade Hospice. A celebration of life will be held September 13, 2014 at 9987 Shamrock Drive, Chilliwack, BC from 1:00-3:00pm. In lieu of flowers donations to the Cancer Society would be appreciated.
