our sympathies with the families of GERALD KING.may he rest in peace.

My sympathies for you all. Gerald was so loyal – remembering birthdays, anniversaries, and connections. I enjoyed his stories.

My sincere condolences to the family of Gerald King. We became friends when Gerald lived on Blatch Avenue. He shovelled my mothers driveway each and every morning after a storm so that I could drive to school in Torbay. He came at 7am and I didn’t even need to call him. When he moved to Mount Pearl and then to Bonaventure Manor we stayed friends. He sent us birthday cards and never missed a year – to me, to my husband and brother Brian in Corner Brook. Also he never missed sending sympathy cards for everyone he knew. Gerald also celebrated and thought very highly of people. He was something like a brother to me. I will miss his phone calls, his messages and his visits. RIP my dear friend Gerald Francis King!

Always soo happy to receive Gracie’s picture at Christmas … and he too never forgot us …rest easy Uncle Gerald

Condolences to Herb and Gary and to other members of Gerald’s family. I grew up on Groves Road playing hockey with Gerald on Oxen Pond or on the road. Jackie, as we called him, dearly loved his Montreal Canadiens and his hero Jacques Plante and that’s why we called him Jackie. If there is a God in Heaven, Jackie is having one hell of a game of hockey. We were all good buddies and Gerald was one of the good guys.

I am shocked to learn of Gerald’s sudden passing. He was loved by everyone, I visited Gerald several times and he was a delight to talk to. A couple of years ago myself and my wife Mary went to a Xmas party hosted by the retirement home he was in. He really enjoyed himself. I have fond memories of Gerald and I know my wife will miss him. Always calling and writing letters. You are gone but will never be forgotten. Rest in peace Gerald until we meet again.

My thoughts and prayers are with the King family. You are gone but will never be forgotten. I have fond memories of you and I am going to miss your letters and phone calls. You are up in heaven with your special aunt (my mom). My you rest in peace until we meet again.

I am sorry to hear of Gerald’s passing. I had enjoyed many conversations with him during the late ’80s.
May he rest in peace.

So sorry to hear of Gerald’s passing. Thoughts and prayers are with you.

I am so sorry to hear of Gerald’s passing , he was a good friend and a very kind man, his passion for politics was enormous. I always enjoyed our meetings and the many phone calls from him while I served on city council. I will miss him.

I was sorry to hear of Gerald’s recent passing and extend deepest sympathies and prayers to his family. I first encountered Gerald when I was elected to St. John’s City Council in 1997. His energetic and enthusiastic opinion on public issues would always engender an interesting discussion. May he rest in peace with his Lord and Saviour.

I was saddened to hear of the sudden passing of Gerald. I first met Gerald in 1993 when I was elected to Council and Gerald would attend our meetings and speak to me on the issues of the day. This continued when I moved to provincial politics and even after I left politics, Gerald would call to discuss issues that were important to him and to have his say in these matters.

I will miss his Christmas cards and his frequent calls.

Rest in Peace Gerald.
