Jacob, “Jake” GERESTEIN

Jacob, “Jake”, passed away Monday, October 23, 2006 in his 85th year. Jake is survived by his wife Bernardina (Dini), sons Bernard (Johanne) and Norman (Patricia); his grandchildren Oliver (Danielle), Eric, Janelle, Mark, Michelle and Jeffery. Jake was known for his good humour and commitment to the commun­ity when he and Dini operated their grocery store, Bernard’s in Abbotsford for almost 30 years. The last few years were challenging, but Jake always accepted his life with a smile.

Jake’s family expresses its sincer­est thanks and appreciation to the staff of Clearbrook Dialysis clinic and to all those who have shared a good laugh with him over the years. He was a great husband, father and grandfather and will be deeply missed. In lieu of flowers please send donations to the Kidney foundation.
