My father, Charlie Trageser, must have worked with Gerald in Lackawanna and Burns Harbor. I was in Vietnam when Dad was transferred. He also had PK disease, as do I (PK-ism for me). I am not driving because of it. I really wanted to attend, but couldn't arrange transportation. I am sorry to hear of your family's loss. I am 75. My email is tragreff at yahoo.com
I live in Orchard Park.

Pat, please accept my condolences. It has been some time since we were in contact with one another, but I did think of him often. Our relationship was special to me, as we shared the same sense of humor, but not the same politics. I guess the best way to put it is:
R.I.P. Buzzy.

My condolences to Jerry's family. I worked with him at Bethlehem Steel Burns Harbor plant in the Human Resources Department. He was a great guy to know and work with.

Jerry was a joy to work with, always a true gentleman and professional. He cared for you as a person regardless if you were in management or union. Heaven gained a good one. RIP.

Had the opportunity to work with Jerry at the Buffalo Urban League. His tireless contribution to this organization over many years was amazing. He always wanted to help. Drove him to work many times over the years and we always had such good conversation. Will miss you my friend ♥
