What a great man Jerry was.
And what a wonderful couple he and his Sharon made..
I'm sure he is now wrapped in God's arms .
And, Sharon, I know you are forever in his heart. ❤

Our sincere sympathies to Master Chief Landcastle's family. We of the Battalion-specific non-profit, "The Seabees of NMCB-74, Inc" give honor to a man who served our Battalion in Vietnam in 1970 and 1971 as a Senior Chief Builder (BUCS), and who had only recently become a member of our group along with his wife Sharon, who will remain a life member of this organization.
As we say in the Navy: "Fair Winds and Following Seas."

----Dan Bower, Pres.

I've worked for dozens of Mayors in my career and no one loved his community more than Jerry. Rough around the edges with a heart of gold, his "can do" attitude resulted in both friends and adversaries. I and Ferndale will never be the same because of him.

My favorite memories of Jerry are from the wreath laying ceremonies at the Seabee Memorial in Washington DC. Jerry (and Sharon) were always there early, helping set things up, saying encouraging words to the Color Guard, and serving as impromptu hosts enthusiastically greeting people, renewing old friendships and making news ones. When the ceremony began, he stood so tall and looked so proud. I was always moved watching him place the wreath in front of the monument. I remember attending some very cold ceremonies with him and his big smile and cheerfulness always warmed me up. I will think of him every time I'm at the Memorial and miss him very much.

My heart goes out to you, Sharon, and your entire family. Even though we didn't know each other for very long, Rich and I always looked forward to seeing you at what used to be our usual Saturday evening Mass and were deeply touched by your kindness and spirit. Peace be with you all.

Sharon I was so sad to hear of Gerry's passing.
You guys were so supportive of me when I moved to Ferndale.
I still think of you both often. You will always be family.
