Gerry Valk was a humanitarian who passionately helped others: He was a true Rotarian. Gerry’s commitment to disadvantaged students at the Essex Valley School and advocacy for high school student scholarships is a but a small part of his legacy.
Rotarians remembered Gerry and expressed their sentiments. Gerry was
“a true gentlemen”, a “great man, a great person, a great guy”
“a class act”,
“a beautiful soul who enriched many lives through his acts of kindness and generosity”
“He epitomized humanitarianism.”
“A fine example of a Rotarian.”
Gerry was all of those and more. He made a difference; he improved the lives of others.
Gerry will be missed. Rest in peace.
