Those of you who knew Gerry will remember him as a very funny and smart person.  We loved his company and are shocked and sad to lose him.   —Judie and Mike Jerald
  Very sorry to read this – a standout personality of our group, both in Turkey and at the reunion. Much sympathy to his family and friends. —Gretchen Nist LaTurner T8

Gerry left early and suddenly and, for those of us who knew and liked him, he took a little piece of our joy with him.  We know for certain that on July 2 of 2018, the world to which we are all probably heading, received an infusion and perhaps overdose of humor. We will wait and see if it isn’t a much more fun, and funnier, place.  — Larry M.

Gerry was truly an outstanding member of T-8.  Someone that everyone liked and admired, dry humor, always upbeat, creative writer and ….well, just a good friend/a good person..  He will be missed by many.
