Vavrik, Gerald Francis
Gerald Francis Vavrik, a loving husband to Tracie and father to Abigail, Mathew, Amber, and Scott sadly passed unexpectantly in Saskatoon on May 30, 2021 at the age of 58. Born April 12, 1963, Gerald and his sister Lynn became a welcome addition to Anne & (predeceased) Stan in 1968. Raised on their farm, Gerald known to most as Gerry, went to Elementary school in Dodsland and finished high school in Plenty. He graduated in 1981 before moving to Rosetown to work at Co-Op Lumber until moving to Moose Jaw and becoming an Electrical Engineer. In the 80s, he found a passion for both electronics and music pursuing a side-career as a DJ, which continued on for the whole of his life. In 2000, Gerald became a loving dedicated parent to Abigail. In 2011 he married his soulmate Tracie, adding her three children with single grandchild (Ana) to his life.
Following a life-threatening accident earlier in 2005, Gerald shifted his interests to woodworking, home renovations, and an active member of the Knights of Columbus. He enjoyed music, people, and helping anyone in need. Gerald’s passions were entertaining and supporting others. Whether it was DJing large weddings or hosting a small BBQ, he loved to set up music equipment, lights, and treat everyone to their favourite songs. It is with sad hearts we say goodbye but we all know, like in life, Gerald is looking down on us all and will be there for us always. A service & celebration of life will be held later this year.
