Gerald Edmond Havnar passed away early Sunday morning, October 25, 2015 at home in Pacifica, shortly after celebrating his 69th birthday. Born in Portland, Oregon, the son of Clive and Helen Quirk Havnar.

Jerry moved to Northern San Mateo county to get away from winter snow and the heat of the summer. Has lived in Pacifica for well over 35 years.

Jerry had a quirky sense of humor. He was a teller of long involved stories. He could be gruff, but he adored his grandchildren putting in numerous family hours for Ernesto, loved joking with Nathan and Sophia. He was number one diaper changer and a mountain to be climbed by the children. Cat whisperer extraordinaire. Jerry has served as the webmaster for the Seeley Genealogical Society for years. Survived by his wife of 35 years, Chris, son Charles (Gretel), and grandchildren. He has three brothers in the greater Portland area, Rex, Richard, and Michael. Also survived by numerous cousins and other relatives.

Services have been held. Burial was in Oak Hill Cemetery, San Jose.
