My sincere condolences to the entire Arshinoff family on the loss of Jerry. He was an honest, reliable , trustworthy and entertaining friend. He did much good for many. On a personal note: When I was studying in France, my mother received a letter from the University of Calgary Medical School asking me to come for an interview. She didn’t understand English well and showed it to my cousin. He told her to throw it into the garbage. Jerry read the letter and I was in Calgary in 3 days. If not for Jerry, I would never have become a doctor.

Dear Diane and family, I had a long & lovely chat with jerry just weeks ago and he didn't tell me he was sick. How typically kind of him. He was so happy with his marriage and his family, it showed in his every word and deed. I hope your wonderful memories will help you through this terrible time. Know that we are thinking of you, Love EstherFriedman and Len Rabin

Ruth Cohen - about 1 month ago

Dear Diane,Steve,and families,I want to extend my deepest condolences to all of you on the loss of your beloved Jerry.My late ex husband Ted grew up with Jerry and Steve in Outremont and those were the memories he always cherished.He shared an unbelievable kinship with Jerry and they nicknamed each other Jerry”Jacques” and Ted “Claude”.When they would talk on the phone they would go back and forth repeatedly and jokingly with their accents Jacques-Claude sometimes for several minutes.Even though distance separated them that friendship and bond held the strongest place in their hearts.When Ted passed away,Jerry spent countless hours recounting childhood stories with my son and consoling him.I know the world is an emptier place without Jacques and Claude but our loss is heavens gain.They are reunited and making heaven a better and funnier place for all.With my heartfelt sympathy,sadly,Ruth

Dear Family of Jerry, I am so saddened by this news even though I have not seen Jerry since we graduated from Outremont High in 1967. I have a twin too (Karen), so Jerry and I had something in common those days. My dear friend Judy Stark (also now deceased) used to mention Jerry and Steve often in the following years. So maybe Judy and Jerry will meet again and keep each other company. Please accept my condolences.
