My fondest memory of Gerald is from a couple of years ago at a barbecue on the Crick Rd. Gerald was perfecting his golf swing by cranking gold balls across the river. My son, Benjamin, who was 10 at the time, had never swung a golf club before that day. Gerald took the time and patience and showed Ben exactly what he needed to do and by the end of the day Ben was cranking them to the other side of the river too. Gerald was a kind man and we were saddened to hear of his death... our thoughts are with Darcy, and the family at this time...

I may only have run into Gerald a dozen times, but I always enjoyed his smile, his laugh, and the conversation. It was as if we had been friends our whole lives. He was a special person.
