Smithers — “It is with great sadness that I learned of the passing of Gerry King. Gerry was a man that gave everything he had to helping people around him and he never backed down when championing someone’s cause.
Gerry worked tirelessly, advocating for people who needed help with every sort of provincial and federal issue.
His knowledge of how the system works and his successes in winning appeals for local folks is a testament of his dedication to helping others.
I had the pleasure to meet with Gerry many times while he was working on cases with constituents. His commitment and love of what he did was immediately apparent.
He leaves some very big shoes to fill and he will be dearly missed by the entire community.”
