Gerry a lot has happened since you passed. Our family has dwindled not many of us left. Jack and I visit the cemetery seems to take a while to make the rounds. I think of you alot miss you every day.The hall just had an election seems like they are dazed and confused down there . It will never be the same,they probably should come out there and ask you what to do next. Miss you everyday always thinking of you.

"Happy Birthday; my friend" You were a great leader and very instrumental to be this local forward. This membership really misses your ability to resolve issues. We lost a great person, a great human being and an excellent Manager; no doubt in the mind that you were one of the best managers in the western states for the SMW members.
Posted by Ronnie Stewart on April 25, 2013
Happy Birthday Gerry,still think of you and miss you every day. Always will.

It doesn't seem possible that the time has passed so quickly. Famiy and friends miss you, but also know that you are in a better place, and that they will see you again. Your birthday is a time to remember and to celebrate the life that you lived.
Posted by Ronald Stewart on April 24, 2012
First I want to say Happy Birthday to my Little brother. Really miss you and think of you daily. Still cannot believe you are gone. Praying you are happy and fishing somewhere.

Happy 60th birthday GERRY love you so much and miss you . Often I think of you,

Gerry "Western States Council" Conscience

Shared by Erik Emblem on July 8, 2011

Gerry was the Conscience of the WSC, he was an advocate for the "smaller" local unions, constantly advocating for the 359 members and their families.   We will miss his wit and sense of humor in our meetings.  

"What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget."

The CHAMPION in our lives.

Shared by Sid Hudson on July 7, 2011

 

Today we burrried a fellow colleague, mentor, friend, and beloved family member.
In my ten years of experience with Gerry, I learned lessons in professionalism as a UNION Sheet Metal Craftsman, union politics, and compassion for my fellow members of the working class.
I can not explain in words the weight I feel in my heart for our fallen brother but I do find comfort that the legacy he has left behind will act as a beam of light for our future. I believe this help us all heal in our loss.
Gerry sacrifised his every waking moment with the best interests of his union brothers/sisters and the labor movement at heart. He always lived as a champion for the greater good of Local Union 359.
Gerry has afforded me many opportunities as a professional but often reminded me of the importance of self realization and humility. I thank you brother for all those life lessons.
If GOD willing, I hope to meet Gerry in the next life, where I am sure he will greet me with a friendly smile, a firm handshake, and the words, "Hey brother! Nice to see ya! Come on in!"......Gerry, You will be missed.
