<div itemprop="description">Gerald Charles Zoerb passed away peacefully Friday in the arms of his lifelong companion, best friend, lover and wife, Lois. Gerry led an inspirational life and will be deeply missed by all that were fortunate to have had him in their lives, especially his wife Lois, and their family: Ilene, Hal, Brett, Angie, Cindy, Rob, Stacy, Scott, Chad, Everhett, and Sheree. <br /> <br /> <br />Gerry was born in Delisle, Saskatchewan. After graduating in Engineering from the University of Saskatchewan, Gerry continued his engineering education in the USA, earning his Masters at Minnesota and his PhD at Michigan State. Gerry often volunteered and prior to his PhD he enlisted into the South Dakota National Guard. During this time he had also had a part time job as a cook, where he met a car-hop named Lois who soon became the most important person in his life. Students were very important to Gerry and he not only taught engineering in Saskatchewan, but also for brief periods in Australia, New Zealand, China and Cuba. Gerry was a dedicated Christian and volunteered a large part of his time to St. Timothy&rsquo;s Anglican Church over several decades until its closing and his joining McClure United Church. <br /> <br />Much could be said about Gerry&rsquo;s outstanding academic and professional life, or the numerous awards and honors he received recognizing his dedication to his profession, his students and to the U of S. But most will remember Gerry for how special and important he made everyone feel just by talking to them, how humble and unselfish he was, that he never complained about anything, and for his genuine generosity and concern for others. To different people he was different things; a great teacher, researcher, mentor, professor, husband, father, brother, uncle, colleague. But to ALL that knew him, he was also a friend. <br /> <br /> <br /></div>
