Three traits come to mind when thinking about Uncle Gerry. Gerry was a loving, passionate, and giving man. Gerry had an incredible amount of love that you could see for Aunt Bert and Karen. He also had very strong love and passion for his country as his service took him all over the world. Other passions include food, golf, and the Cleveland Indians. Im not sure if Corn on Cob, Chicken Livers, or Chicken Wings were his favorite. Gerry was a very giving person who gave so much to his country and family. I will always remember my first set of golf clubs coming from over seas in 1972. Still have them today. Gifts were sent to his family when he served in Germany. Gerry also enjoyed grilling for his family, especially in DC. You will be missed Uncle Gerry RIP.
