Carol & Family. Sorry to hear of your loss. I worked with Gerry at TACOM/Abrams. When I came to the office I was 'his intern' and he provided great guidance. I'm glad I got to know him. I know he really enjoyed talking about his family, talked alot about his grandkids and their accomplishments and really enjoyed working with the Boy Scouts. May you take solance knowing he is in a happy place and his smile will go on forever.

I worked with Gerry at TACOM. When I retired I lost track and just was informed of his passing. I always liked Gerry and always remember the Birthday party about 20 or so years ago. I wish to send my condolences to his family and close friends. RIP Gerry.

Dear Carol & family,

We remember our days in scouting with "Dr. J." He helped bring many boys from Troop 1496 to the rank of Eagle Scout. We lost touch after scouting but we do have fond memories.

Sincerely,
Don & Martha Block
