Gerry was more than a man who simply loved the outdoors. Born, raised, lived, and passed in his hometown. Gerry would help any person in need even if it put him in jeopardy. The smile says it all... I can not remember a time he was not glad to see you. Gerry was very good at anything he put his mind to, and he put his mind to many things. I remember when I struggled on certain things...he was always there to help in such an uncritical way. I could always count on Gerry to be an honest person, and moreover a great friend. Unfortunately he has passed way before his time. God bless you Gerry.. I am sure we will meet up again in heaven.

Gerry was always my choice for information and most times he had the answer and solution. I still have hunting and shooting gear recommended and handed to me by Gerry. Always ready to stop and chat. Prayers for all your loved ones. you will be missed by many.

I worked with Gerry at Safeway in the late '80's and considered him a friend from that point on. My condolences to his parents, to his children, to his brother John and to his friends and co-workers at Frontier.

Happy hunting and fruitful fishing in the Great Beyond, Gerry.

I really didn't know Gerry but he received his dog Knight from us. I stopped into Frontier to see how he and Knight were doing. He seemed very happy to have Knight by his side. I am so sad to here of his passing. My condolences to his family and friends.

Gerry was a pretty fair trumpet player in his youth. I remember going to Kodiak on a Lathrop band trip in 1982. He and the Jelinek boys built a sound system for the bus with a car battery and a car cassette deck. Introduced me to Led Zeppelin on that trip. I will miss his smile and quick jokes as well as his help at Frontier. Condolences to the family on the very large hole his passing will leave in your lives.

Very sad to hear this. Gerry was a very regular customer with King Cab of who I am a driver. We always talked guns and dogs as I took him to his job at Frontier Outfitters. Such a shock!
