HOUGHTON--Gerald Henry.

It is with deep sadness that his family announce the passing of Gerald Henry Hough- ton. The beloved husband of Aileen and father of John (Tanya) passed away on March 24, 2016 after a short illness. His death was unexpected as just one week prior he was still making his daily train commute from Ridgefield, CT to Midtown Manhattan where he continued to lead Brooks Houghton & Co, the merchant banking firm he founded alongside Steven Brooks in 1989. Gerald influenced everyone with whom he came in contact and will be remembered for his grace, manners, and integrity as well as the many long -lasting relationships he developed over his 77 years. A memorial service celebrating his life will take place on Monday, April 4, 2016, at 10:30am. The service will be held at St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church at 325 Park Avenue, New York. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in his honor to the New York Rescue Mission, 90 Lafayette Street, New York, NY 10013.
