Not sure what to say?

Gerry was not only a mentor top me dueling my years at Gerald Metal, but he was a true friend both socially and personally,but as we soon realize life is to short and to say Gerry was a good friend is not enough. Life is such that we find ourselves to busy to keep up with old friends and the distance between us grows and grows. I therefore call onGerry to once again be my Mentor and through his passing teach me to be a better person and help me keep in touch not only with family but those who...

Mr. Lennard wore many hats in my family's life; father, grandpa, financial advisor, best of all, he was a dearest friend forever!
Family and friends, please accept our sympathies. He will be in our prayers and in our hearts. We'll always LOVE YOU Mr. L. - Neide, JB, Manuela, & Samantha - East Hampton, NY

Most sincerely, Maryann

Gerry was a true friend and mentor to me and my family throughout our many years of knowing each other going back to the early 70's. Among the very top leaders in the metals industry it was truly a privilege and especial experience to have worked and "earned your stripes" under such a dedicated and learned leader in his field.

I also work at Gerald Metals and am in my 28th year of employ. Gerry hired me in 1991. He mentored me for many years.
I am extremely grateful in having met this man and worked with him for many years. He taught us well. Please accept my sympathies. He will be in my prayers.....

It is with deep sadness we send our sympathies to the entire Lennard family for their loss. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this most difficult time. Our entire family is thinking about you.

My sympathies to the family. I had the pleasure of working with Gerry at Gerald Metals and when 9/11 occurred he encouraged people to donate and said he would match dollar for dollar for every donation made to a 9/11 charity and when a colleague was dying of cancer he paid him in full until he died. His widow said it changed her life allowing her to make proper financial arrangements prior to his passing. This was the Gerry I knew.
