It has been my privilege to have known Gerald for over 40 years. We hunted pheasants and quail in 4 states and fished Canada numerous times. Nearly all the trips we took, if Sundays were involved we went to church. It never took long in a conversation for Gerald to talk about his relationship with Jesus our Lord and Savior! It is an honor to have called Gerald my friend he will missed but not forgotten.

Uncle Gerald will forever be in my heart and happy memories. He always had a funny story to tell - something to make your laugh and smile. He enjoyed his family and loved them all very much. After my dad died, I saw his concern for me and my brother to talk and guide us when we needed to speak to someone about life. He was a great brother to my mother Carol Ruth and I know he was a loving son to my Grandma Lennie when she was alive. He was a wonderful Christian and loved God. He was a great business man. I was always proud of all he and his wife Carol Nan and their 3 sons had accomplished. You will be greatly missed Uncle Gerald. I love you!
