Our heart felt condolences. Gerry was such a good friend to our father during his time at St. Peter's Residence. He was kind, caring, and had quite the sense of humor. We will fondly remember Gerry joining us for coffee and treats, and telling us stories when we would come to visit St. Peter's. He would always make time to talk to my oldest son and show him his collection of small cars. He was always excited to see our family dog as well. He will be greatly missed by everyone's life he touched. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

On behalf of Thomas (Tom) Large (St Peter's resident) and his family (Sarah, Erinn, Scott, and Ben & Lucas)

Jerry was a wonderful friend, a conscientious worker always, loyal and soooo interesting to visit with. He was an usher in our wedding nearly 52 years ago and we have kept in touch. He never asked for anything and we loved seeing him drop in for a visit in his treasured old car! He was so proud of it! He will be sorely missed.
Our sincere condolences to the family, love Brian and Gail
