Prescott, Gerald Brent  
Gerald Brent Prescott, age 71, died Dec. 24, 2014, at his home in Colorado Springs. He was born Feb. 18, 1943, in Alhambra, CA, son of Virgil C. and Mary Dean Prescott. He was a retired elementary school teacher and served, lastly as a Captain, in the US Air Force from 1967-73. He received a Masters Degree in Education from the University of Kansas. Survivors include his brother, Ronald Prescott, niece, Katy Riegel, nephew, Pat Prescott, all of St. John, KS. Cremation has taken place, and a private family burial will be at a later date in St. John. Gerry was a lover of good theatre. He had been deeply involved with Vassar (Kansas) Playhouse, during his many teaching years in Ottawa, Kansas. Here in Colorado Springs, he held season tickets to the Millibo Art Theatre, UCCS Theatreworks, the Fine Arts Center-and occasionally, Star Bar Theatre, Smokebrush and Theatre d'Art. So deep was his knowledge of theatre that rare was the play that he hadn't already seen. Dates, productions, actors, playwrights-no fact eluded him! He had a prodigious memory about nearly everything! Gerry was a knowledgeable lover of music and had subscribed to the Philharmonic for many years. He was an aficionado of all things Macintosh and had recently joined the Board of the computer group. His reading tastes were broad and deep, reflecting his interest in science, particularly astronomy. When Gerry was introduced to Transcendental Meditation in the early 1970s, he became a practitioner for life. Gerry kept up with old and new friends, regaling them with his wicked sense of humor and satirical view of history and politics. He was not one to ignore a comment made in ignorance or malice! Donations may be made in Gerry's memory to Millibo Theatre or Theatreworks.
