We will always remember Jerry for keeping a watchful eye on the Queen St shop at night. We surely appreciated that. Many times he would call us to tell us someone had pulled in the lot after hours making him suspicious of what they wanted. We enjoyed exchanging xmas cards with Jerry each year also.

I grew about with Gerry just like a second dad in my life. I enjoyed all the times we spent when we were kids with Jerry. This is just another chapter in the book of life. Celebrate the life that we knew in our own lives. Richard & Sherri Mullen

Pat and family, my prayers go out to you on your fathers passing. He was like a dad to us after our father passed. Lot of nights over at his house eating pizzas. He was a great man and i am very proud to have known him.

Dear grandpa,
I miss you so much! I can't put to words how much having you as a grandpa ment to me. You never said a harsh word to me, or raised your voice in anger. I wish you could have stayed with us forever, but I know that was not possible. I hope God was able to answer your questions about Noahs arc, and how he got all those animals on there. May you rest in Pease, and know that you are so very loved on earth as you are in heaven. Bye grandpa,I love you! I know you'll be there when it's my time to come home. Right oh!

Will miss listening to the many stories he always reminisced about while at home with Pat and Roger or while visiting the grandkids at Misty and Judd's in Freeport. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

I had the pleasure of caring for Gerald when he came in to see his doctor. He was always so very kind and had a smile on his face. He will be missed. God Bless Gerald and his family.

Pat and family, I am saddened to hear of your father's passing. He had a huge impact in my life as I grew up after my father died. His quiet strength and straight forward approach to challenges made a lasting impression on me. To me, he was an amazing man. May he Rest In Peace. You all are in our prayers.
