Gerald Moser and Audrey Heideman were both born and raised in Kitchener. They were married in 1942, after being introduced by friends at a dance, and remained life-long residents of the area.
After working his way through all levels of the business, Gerald became the proud owner of Kitchener Beverages Limited, the local Pepsi Cola soft drink franchise. While he worked hard to build the business, Audrey was continually supportive and stayed home to raise their two children, Sandra and Roger.
In addition to his busy professional life, Gerald remained very active within the community in order to give something back to the people that helped make him successful. Wishing to promote and preserve a tradition of excellence in education, Gerald served as a Trustee on the Waterloo Catholic District School Board. Gerald and Audrey were also long-time supporters of many local community charities, including St. Mary’s General Hospital, the Carmelite Monastery, St. Jerome’s University, the Congregation of the Ressurrection and the local Knights of Columbus. As a result of their contributions to the Catholic community, Gerald and Audrey were both honoured by the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, becoming Sir Gerald and Lady Audrey.
To pay tribute to their parents’ generosity and concern for others, Gerald & Audrey’s children made an investment in their honour through the One Voice One Vision campaign.
