Gerald Parchewski Obituary

Gerald Albert Parchewski of Wetaskiwin County, Alberta, loving husband, father, grandfather, passed away at the age of 65 on November 22, 2023, surrounded by his wife and children. 

Gerald was born on July 26, 1958, in Shellbrook, Saskatchewan. He grew up on a farm in the R.M. of Blaine Lake, Saskatchewan, where his parents, Paul and Rose farmed grain and cattle. This is where he was taught the riches of farming and the love of cattle.

In 1976, Gerald moved to Alberta and met his future wife, Darlene. In 1979 they were married and in 1981, welcomed their first daughter, Angela. Soon after, in 1985 they welcomed Jody and in 1987, to complete their family their third daughter Kristin was born.

He joined the oilfield in 1979 and retired in 2018. In addition, Gerald farmed grain and cattle with his family. In his spare time, he could be found woodworking in his shop or tinkering with different projects. He was very proud of his well-manicured yard and enjoyed camping and fishing. What he valued most was spending time with his family. His grandchildren were the lights of his life, and they could always count on Grandpa and Grandma to be cheering for them on the sidelines at any activity or sporting event.

Gerald was brave, strong, courageous, and appreciated a well thought out plan. He will be missed by all that were fortunate enough to know him.

Gerald is lovingly remembered by his wife, Darlene (Bailey); daughters, Angela (Shaughn) Nichols; Jody (Brenden) Vaters; Kristin (Jeff Steele); grandchildren, Benjamin, Ethan, Karlee, Payton, Blake, Andie; brother, Wayne (Lynn); sister, Lynne (John) Ogenchuk; as well as numerous sister’s and brother-in-law, nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
