Marilla Darcy Ryan and family.

I was shocked to hear of Gerald's passing. Having worked with the Gentle Giant for many years at DOT he was always willing to help every time I would see him in Miller Lake he would be looking for float haul to Cape Breton, which he did many times for me when I was coordinator in Sydney .I always looked forward to our meeting at work or as a friend.
As I looked at the posted pictures it brought so many memories of that smiling face and loving man.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.
A great friend gone too soon

Dear Mrs. Knol and family,

My name is Ian MacLean and I work with DOT out of Baddeck. I had the pleasure of working with Gerald three years ago in Salmon River, Northern Cape Breton. I had met him many times before and after but that was when I gotten to know him best. He was such a kind guy . He spoke with high regard and love for his wife and boys. My wife and I are praying for you and your family at this time and as sure as I am that God provides a new life for us after death; Gerald is now enjoying that new life and waiting for his loved ones to join him some day. God Bless!
