Condolence: Sending condolences to all of Gerry's family on his recent passing. Gerry was a good neighbour and friend. It seems only yesterday that he visited Stan frequently....arguing politics and settling the world's affairs....many memories of "the good times"
Condolence: My deepest condolences to Gerry's family. I was saddened to hear of his passing, yet I have so many fond memories on which to reflect. He was a great teacher (my favorite) a mentor and just an overall positive influence in my life. I will always remember his unmatched wit and dry sense of humour. I considered him a friend long after my high school days and find myself feeling regretful for losing touch in the recent past. A few things that make me think of Gerry to this day, Newhart, Quirks and Quarks, CBC radio, and Daniel Lanois. He clearly left his mark in the world. He will be missed.
Condolence: I am very sorry to hear of Gerry's passing. I extend my deepest condolences to Joyce and all family members. I was a teaching colleague of Gerry's at Pugwash District High School.
I recall in particular that Gerry had a deep appreciation of the environment and the ways that we, as humans, have disrespected our environment. He was very knowledgeable in this area as, indeed, he was in many aspects of the human existence. Gerry contributed to his community through local groups and his tenure as a municipal councillor. Gerry will be missed by all of us who knew him.
Condolence: I am very saddened to hear of Gerry's passing. He knew who to push in his classes to get the best out of them, something I didn't appreciate until we met up many years later with more years on us. He was a county councilor then and I admired his tenacity and willing to put up the good fight for this area. He was droll and could make me laugh in the midst of serious debate. I shall miss him. My condolences to his children and their families.
Condolence: I was sorry to hear of Gerry’s passing. Through the 45 years of having known him it was always a pleasure to see and learn from him. I certainly was not a fan of school , considering how it interfered with the flow of my day. But Mr Langille’s classes were different.
They were enjoyable because he loved to push back and make you think , forcing you to choose your words carefully. Many in class did not enjoy this ,but most, I believe appreciated his expectation of us as students. English, biology and drivers education were the subjects that I got to take with Mr. Langille. Outings to Truro, Mount Allison in drivers ed were certainly days I looked forward to.
Getting to go skiing with one of my teachers on weekends was also something that was made possible by Mr Langille. Lots of time spent chatting and “discussing “ current events on the T-bar.
It was always a pleasure seeing Gerry in Wallace and getting the latest on what was going on in the county and the country.
Gerry certainly helped make me a more critical thinker. For better or worse I thank him for that. Hans Christian
Condolence: Gerry was one of my English teachers and I was in his driver's education class in grade 11. He was one of my favourite teachers. I am so sorry to hear of his passing.
He will be so missed but has left lots of memories with his former students and all who knew him. He would have been so surprised to know that I became an educator and I know it would have given him a chuckle.
Rest well Mr. Langille.
