Gerald A. Wilkins
Peacefully in the comfort of his own home and with his faithful canine companion "Maggie" nearby, Gerald Allen Wilkins completed his earthly journey on Friday, January 18, 2019 at the age of 77. Born in Fredericton on September 26, 1941, Gerald was a son of the late Nelson and Rena (Armstrong) Wilkins.
Gerald was a truck Driver for Perfection Paving for many years. One of his greatest enjoyments was puttering around in his workshop either repairing something or creating something new. His hands were very seldom idle.
Gerald is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 50 years, the former Delcina M. Daigle. He also leaves behind four children, Karen Hunter (Randy) of Fredericton, Terry Wilkins (Fran) of Whitby, ON, Jean Wilkins (Mark Christie) of Fredericton and Tania Wilkins (Francis Moulton) of Tobique; 9 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren; I brother, Myles Wilkins (Laura) of Fredericton; nieces and nephews.
Aside from his parents, 8 siblings predeceased him.
Respecting Gerald’s wishes there will be no visitation or formal funeral service. Burial will be private and at a later date.
The family has designated the Fredericton SPCA for memorial contributions.
