GERALD DUTKA (published on June 26, 2010)

GERALD DUTKA It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Gerry Dutka, 74 years, on June 22, 2010 at Winnipeg. Gerry will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by many. He is survived by his daughter Angela Mary Prefontaine, grandson Zak Bannatyne and his brother Walter (Marion). Gerry was predeceased by his former wife, Louise Mary Dutka; and his parents, Stephen and Mary Dutka. Gerry was a hardworking, honest man who made his living with his hands and had a soft heart for all. He absolutely adored his daughter, loved her so very deeply, was extremely proud of her and was incredibly proud of all that she accomplished. Gerry loved children, his family and extended family, the outdoors, animals in general, but especially he loved dogs, and watching cowboy and western movies. Gerry will be quite missed by the group of squirrels who he had taken to feeding outside of his kitchen window over the last number of years, such was his love of animals and his way with them. His daughter's dog, Jazz, already misses him. Gerry owned and operated his own commercial meal truck service for several years, where he would provide meals to construction site crews throughout the city. He later worked for Building Products as a professional vehicle driver for over 20 years. In fact, at 74 years of age, Gerry had just successfully reapplied for and obtained his class 5 drivers license. Something that he was determined to do in order that his daughter might be even more proud of him than she already was. We would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to the many members of the Winnipeg Police Service and the Winnipeg Police Association who greatly assisted us through a very difficult time. A celebration of life will be held on Tuesday, June 29, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. at Green Acres Funeral Home and Cemetery. Reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Winnipeg Humane Society in memory of Gerry Dutka. GREEN ACRES Funeral Home and Cemetery 1 Green Acres Lane, Springfield (204) 222-3241 Hwy #1 East inside the Perimeter at Winnipeg Condolences may be sent to: www.greenacresfuneralhome.com
