Born Aug 15, 1932, in Wood Mountain, SK to Elvin & Eva Barstad, the 4th child of 13. He was a grain buyer for Pioneer Grain then worked for the Town of Gleichen before moving to Calgary in 1965 where he worked as a steam/gasfitter for Trotter & Morton. He moved back to Gleichen to the home place and was the local plumber for many years.

Gerry was very active in the community and enjoyed curling, fishing, playing music with Rosella Pietz & Friends Band and of course the annual birthday party that brought many family & friends from near and far.
