Kneehill County Mourns the loss of a Colleague, Friend
Our deepest sympathies are with the family of Jerry Brett, who passed away on July 22, 2014 while on vacation. Jerry was an integral member of our organization serving in the capacity of Director of Planning and Protective Services. He diligently and respectfully served the residents of Kneehill County for the past six years, and was instrumental in the creation of several planning documents and initiatives for our community.
His team approach was evident in his work as he was highly respected in his field (Past President of the Alberta Development Officers Association), as well as with colleague’s.
Jerry had a large personality that will be unmatched. Known for his “jib jabs”, he had a silent wittiness that we couldn’t get enough of. He never let a water cooler conversation end without mention of soccer or his pride in his English roots. Words cannot express how deeply missed he will be by Kneehill County staff, Council, and the friendships we all had with him.
