On Monday, July 29, 2019, Jerry John Turcsanyi, loving husband and father of three children, passed away at the age of 61. Jerry was born on October 10th, 1957 in Cranbrook, BC to Hungarian parents George and Katie Turcsanyi.

He enjoyed science fiction (Star Trek), music, coffee, Italian food, and dessert.
