“A loss leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.”
Sept. 28, 1961 ~ June 2, 2012
It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we announce the passing of Jerry (Awtar Singh) Alamwala. He was taken from us unexpectedly on Saturday June 2, 2012 at the age of 50. He was born on September 28, 1961 in Duncan, British Columbia to the late Sarwan Singh and Bachan Kaur Alamwala. Jerry attended Abbotsford Senior Secondary School and graduated in 1979. Following High School he attended Trinity Western University where he obtained his degree in Aviation Technology and Commercial Pilot’s License. He continued his education at BCIT, and upon completion his passion for agriculture brought him back to the family business. Through his hard work and dedication he developed one of North America’s largest berry and brussel sprout operations. His progressive thinking and intelligence have helped shape the agriculture industry. Jerry was a loving and caring husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. He was blessed to spend 26 years of his life with his soul-mate and loving wife Satwinder (Pam). He was very proud of his four children Mandy, Sharon, Jordan and Kyle.
