Best supervisor I ever had - someone you talk to and reason with. Gerry will be missed!

Gerry was kind, first and foremost but coming in a close second was his sense of humour. He could make me laugh, laugh at myself and more than anything, laugh at him, laughing! It was contagious. He must have been born with a twinkle in his eye.

Gerry was kind, first and foremost but coming in a close second was his sense of humour. He could make me laugh, laugh at myself and more than anything, laugh at him, laughing! It was contagious. He must have been born with a twinkle in his eye.

But he also had a highly developed sense of “right and wrong”, which factored into loyalty and compassion. I was once being ” encouraged” to testify against a dangerous felon, when Gerry intervened, and with a look of thunder, escorted the officer out of the office. Another time he “gave” a pass to a destitute and desperate client who’s child was dying, and couldn’t afford a ticket home.

Gerry was my best boss, my dear friend, and, in short supply today, my hero. When the 747 was introduced, he had a little “ Fat Albert” 747 model on his bookcase in his office. I loved it and commented on it. He walked over, picked it up and gave it to me. All these years later, I still have it and it still makes me smile. Remembering Gerry.
