He loved his family, and home in Cape Breton is where his heart was. Predeceased are his father Gerald L Wadden, and his step-father Henry Boudreau who nicknamed Jerry “Captain G”. Cremation has taken place. There will be no visitation, or service. A small celebration of life will take place this summer.
