MORRIS, Gerald L.   -  In his 92nd year, Jerry died peacefully and bravely, on June 23, 2022, with his wife, Thelma, at his bedside.

He shared over 50 amazing years of his long, happy and well-lived life with his now heartbroken wife. Jerry was predeceased by his brother, Donald and his wife, Dorothy.

He is survived by their children: Paul (Susan), John (Patricia), Anne (Gregg), Jane, Lynn (John), Dawn (Jay); their daughter, Kathleen; and Glen (Susan).

Jerry was predeceased by his wife's sister, Marlyn Beaupré and her husband, John.

He is survived by their children: Christine (Elizabeth) and Laurie, Paul (Patricia) and their son LJ. He is survived by his wife's sister, Kathleen Baxter.

Jerry had a distinguished career in law with the Canadian Foreign Service, and retired from the University of Toronto as Professor Emeritus.

He spent his retirement with Thelma traveling the world.

He enjoyed entertaining friends with stories about his travels and sharing his great sense of humour. He loved animals, especially turtles and cared deeply about the health of the environment.

Jerry will be missed deeply by his family and friends who loved him and who he loved in turn.

As per Jerry's wishes, there will be no funeral service.

Donations in Jerry's memory to the Charity of Your Choice would be appreciated.
