Gale Kerwin, a Canadian Boxing legend, former Ottawa Alderman and Real Estate Broker of the family firm: Kerwin Realties Limited.

He is a member of the Canadian Boxing Hall of Fame.

Mr. Kerwin represented a Dalhousie Ward on Ottawa council for four years, until 1974. During his time as alderman, Gale was always arguing for more recreational facilities for teens. It was his belief that if you gave them a place away from the streets, there'd be less trouble on the streets. He was an astute politician and worked very hard for his constituents.

Gale Kerwin was a successful business man in the City of Ottawa and Real Estate Broker. He had an excellent code of ethics working with his clients; built a reputation of trust.

Mr. Kerwin passed away September 19th, 2001; due to heart complications after receiving a heart transplant at the age of 66. He will be missed by his family and friends. Shawn Kerwin has the same work ethics instilled and will continue with the family Real Estate business.
