Bill & Betty,
Thank you so much for sharing Gerry with us, he was a very special person and we are all going to miss him. We will do our best to keep up the lovely courtyard garden he planted and shared with all of us. We will take very good care of Marion, as we know he is watching! Lots of Love from your Grand Oaks family.

We were saddened to hear this news. It should be known that Gerry was already missed by many at the Ocean South Condominium ever since he and Marion moved to Grand Oaks. Now he will sorely be missed by all that knew him.

While we only had the pleasure of knowing Gerry for a few years after we moved to Oceana South, we always heard from many that he donated a lot of time and effort to Oceana South and its residents for many years. He seemed to know more about the innerworkings of the building than anyone else and was always willing to help by sharing that knowledge.

We fondly recall that Gerry had one of the warmest smiles and a keen whit that would make you laugh all the time. Most of all if you knew Gerry you knew he was a loving and devoted husband to Marion and his world revolved around her well being. We will always remember the many Friday night socials where Gerry and Marion would typically sing their own version of “On the way to Cape May”

May he rest in peace and may God bless Marion until they meet again

Uncle Jerry was one of the nicest, happiest, outgoing, friendly and gracious persons I have ever known. To know him was to truely love him. Always the ultimate gentleman, with a smile, a laugh and a cavalier happy go lucky charm about him. As a kid, I always thought of he & Marion as "The Cool Aunt & Uncle". They were both very generous and kind. I too have memories of his boat and how much he loved being on the water. I still have a picture of my son John ( age 6-7) sitting on Jerry's lap steering the boat. I recall as a youngster riding in his car through Port Richmond and noticing 4 Catholic Churches within blocks of one another and asking him why. Back then, I couldn't grasp the concept of why all the Irish went to one, the Polish to another, the Germans another, the Italians....
I am so glad I got to see he & Marion in Florida this past November. My best is with Marion; may God protect & watch over her. Thanks to Betty & Bill for all their love & care over the years.

My memories of Uncle Gerry was that of a proud Irishman. He always was laughing or had a smile on his face. I remember his little boat that he took Kevin and myself on and Kevin almost dumped us because you had to turn the motor opposite of the way you wanted to go. He introduced us to video games when he and Aunt Marion brought over “Pong”. We hooked it up and started playing it on our tv while we were down the shore. This led to many more hours in front of the tv.
I also heard how heroic he was. I think Forest Gump learned from Uncle Gerry. I heard how he rescued many of his fellow soldiers during World War II.
He also loved Aunt Marion very much and he will be dearly missed. I was very happy to see them when he came up and visited Uncle Fred at Janice’s house and the two brothers were still smiling and laughing. God Bless Uncle Gerry. He is now with all his brothers and sisters.
