A lifelong resident of Pine Hollow, Gerald was born in his family home on May 1, 1935, the son of the late Floyd Detzer and Florence Nettleton Detzer. Gerald spent most of his life as a dairy farmer, and in 1988 he went to work for the Cayuga County Highway Department at the Venice barn. Gerald was known for being a good neighbor and for his keen sense of humor. He will be sadly missed by many.

Honoring Gerald's wishes, there will be no services.
