    Gerry was the archetypal gentleman, gentle but wise in speech, patient with others, non-judgmental. As the husband of my mother’s closest cousin (a cousin who many thought was my mother’s sister!), and as a WW-II veteran, an experience that he shared with my father, he and Millie were so frequently part of our extended family. A friend to our son Matthew, lending his wisdom.

    Although Gerry lived well into his 90′s, that he has passed away is still a loss.

    May the memory of the righteous be for a blessing, זכר צדיק לברכה
