Ashenhurst; Reuben, Gerald (Jerry)

Passed away peacefully August 15, 2014, Reuben Gerald (Jerry) Ashenhurst at Chilliwack General Hospital. Born November 1, 1942 in Winnipeg, Manitoba; Jerry grew up (terrorizing everyone) on Sumas Prairie, part of a large, loving family. He is survived by his wife Louise, daughter Virginia (Mike), and grandsires Garrett, Mitchell and Evan; sisters Berniece (George), Myrt, Shirley (Johnny), brother-in-law Hank and sister-in-law Kathy (Alan). Jerry was predeceased by his parents Rube and Ruby, baby son Vincent, brother Darwin, sister Marg and brother-in-law’s Len & Bryan. A special thank you from all of us to Dr.’s Kishi, Bartel and Dueck. Also, to Byron and Gerry from Home Support, the staff on Nursing Unit 5 – Path Unit, and a special shout out to Dave. The care and compassion from all of you is greatly appreciated. A very casual celebration (party) will be held Saturday, September 20 at Atchelitz Hall (Jer was a member of the Atchelitz Farmer’s Institute), with dinner, drinks & good stories (3 of Jerry’s fravorite things), from 5:00 pm to midnight. No flowers, no tears, just well brewed beers… the way Jerry wanted it (if you want to bring a salad, or desert, that would be okay). Please come join us.
