I am so broken and sad to hear of Gerry’s passing. To me he was not just my mentor but an extension of my family. He had so many talents besides his intelligence - he carried himself with grace and honor throughout his life. He always spoke so fondly of his family and especially Charlotte. His marriage was one of a kind with mutual respect and unbounding love – again showing the way. My heart is in a million pieces – I have so many many memories of such a wonderful, giving and amazing friend. He truly guided me in the path I am living today and I will always remember the impact he made in my life. Know that these life lessons he was gracious to share with me I now share with my kids. I will never ever forget him and love him so much. My heart goes out to you Charlotte! Sending you, Jennifer, Scott and the grandkids much much love.

Deepest Condolences to Charlotte and the Key family at this difficult time. Gerry was an inspiration to me for this loyalty, love of living and family. There are many fond memories; of the book titles Gerry would suggest over the years, his shared stories of travel and his wisdom on the various aspects of life. Gerry was unique. He will be deeply missed.

It is with a heavy heart that I am writing this condolence to Gerry's wife and children, on behalf of those friends Gerry worked with at Accipiter Radar. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

Gerry was a kind and gentle soul who was instrumental in the development of avian radar to help reduce the risk of bird strikes by military aircraft at DoD facilities. His contributions to the field be remembered.

You will be missed my friend. May you rest in peace.

Tim J. Nohara,
President & CEO, Accipiter Radar
