Gerry Huddleston was thrilled to join the Lakeside Pools team in April and will be primarily responsible for hot tub sales. Gerry has more than 20 years of fundraising experience, 10 years weekly and daily newspaper experience, worked on Parliament Hill and at Queen’s Park for Members of Parliament and was a Town Councillor for nine years. For the past two years Gerry has sold high fashion men’s clothing in downtown Kingston while living close to his two year Grandson and his son’s family.
Steve Murray is probably the most capable service man in Eastern Ontario !! With over 25 years of experience, Steve has an extensive knowledge in pool systems, chemicals and gas fired heaters. Give Steve a wave next time you see him in our Lakeside Pools service truck!
Terry is the hardest working non-paid employee. During the winter Terry dedicated long days to making our shop look beautiful but don’t ask him to come in on a hot summer day!
Mallory joined our team back in May and has excelled in her role as the super star office admin aka communications officer. She has a strong focus on customer service and greets every customer with a smile. Don’t let that smile fool you, she is often found bossing the boys around and keeping everyone in line. Thanks Mallory!
Daniel and Brandon
This Dynamic Duo can do it all. Watch them transform your backyard into the perfect oasis. They are hard working, professional smiling faces and an important part of the Lakeside team. You can often find them cleaning their tools in their spare time or enjoying a cold beer at Raxx.

Jaime Rocks! She’s the second most important person here, besides her sister Leslie. Jaime seldom uses a chair and you’ll often find her cleaning and organizing the shop. She’s a water testing expert and she really knows her stuff!
