  • Uncle Gerald was a man who never changed. You always knew what to expect from him because we was himself and nothing else.

    Our fondest memories of Uncle Gerald were at family events, most recently our sisters wedding where he was arguably the life of the party!

    Uncle Gerald was taken too soon and we will miss him greatly.
