The son of the late Nathan and Bella (Tobin) Schwartz was born on March 20, 1937 in Brooklyn, New York. Gerald was a proud veteran of the United States Army and upon returning form service he moved to Miami, Florida where he met Carol. They moved to Hoosick Falls in 1966 and immediately became active members in the community. Gerald was a past Exalted Ruler of the BPOE#178. He was a prolific gardener and many enjoyed his bounty. As a well-known NY Jets fan, friends gathered often with him to watch their games in front of his television.

Survivors other than his wife Carol include his sons Steven and Dominick Schwartz and Steven"s longtime companion Sandra Weatherwax, a daughter Julie Hyde (Edward), and grandchildren Kaitlyn and Ryan Hyde and Jordan Schwartz, all of Hoosick Falls and a brother Harvey Schwartz of Miami, Florida.
