Jerry was born on 26 March, 1943 in Cardston, Alberta to Frank and Oneta (Archibald) Aldridge.
Jerry had a full life working hard. Jerry was an oilfield Consulting Engineer, which took him to all
parts of the world from the Arctic to South America to Libya, and having met such people as Omar Khadafi
and Yassar Arafat. He was well liked on all oil derricks he has managed and that included his travelling

people he loved. He will be sadly missed by the people who loved him most, but his memories will always
be cherished and in our hearts.
