Gerry was born on Sept. 20 of 1946 in Norridgewock, Maine. As a young man he loved riding horses and was very fond and proud of his four years spent in the Navy.

He married his high school sweetheart, Sandra, who loved him more than words could express. They spent 52 wonderful years together. Those years brought them a son and a daughter who adored him that much more. His family was his world and what he treasured the most above all. He will be sorely missed by his family and those that were lucky enough to call him friend.
