Our fallen firefighter

On July 26, 2018, Jerry Gadwa passed away, unexpectedly.
Jerry was a dedicated father to a 10 year old son. He was a devoted uncle to his many nieces and nephews, a loving brother, friend and fellow firefighter.
Jerry was from Kehewin Cree Nation which is located near Bonnyville, Alberta. He always worked hard to provide for his son, he gave him the best of everything.
Since his death, Facebook has been flooded with stories and tributes of Jerry and the love and respect that everyone has for him. He will be mourned by all but his memory will live forever.

With all the emotional pain and stress a death brings financial burdens. We would like to raise money for Jeramy, his son. To keep to keep with any costs that will incur and help where ever it may be needed. Nothing will replace this little boys daddy not coming home but the family will try our best to support and love unconditionally.

In these times of loss and sadness when you see people coming together to help one another make it through. We are thankful!
Thank everyone for their kind words and moments of silence! Tributes and honouring his dedication of 20 years to firefighting.
