Gerrit Hagelaar, 89, of Toronto passed away in the early morning hours of Monday, September 3, 2018. Gerry was born in The Netherlands, in the city of Helmond, on November 6, 1928. He had a number of occupations but was primarily a meat cutter in both his family's business back home and then here in Canada when he emigrated in 1954. When he was younger he played soccer and continued his love of playing and watching sports throughout his life. Gerry's favourite pastime was fishing and I don't think anything gave his as much pleasure as being in a boat on a lake with his buddies. He is survived by his son David and will be greatly missed by all of his friends. Visitation will be held this Sunday from 2-4 with a memorial service taking place at 3 p.m. in the chapel of the Hogle Funeral Home, 63 Mimico Avenue, Etobicoke, ON.
