We remember Gerry as a gentle giant but with strong convictions. He loved his family and Linda and I were lucky as his long-distance cousins to know that love. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and the Stewart family.

Gerry "Western States Council" Conscience

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.

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.
