step-grandchildren, seven step-great-grandchildren and one
step-great-great-grandchild. He is further survived by nieces, nephews,
and an extended family. All those who knew him feel the loss.
Gerry was a true gentleman. He loved God, family and his country. He
loved spending time with family and friends. He grew up in rural
Wisconsin, a simple man. When he worked, he worked hard, but he knew how
to have a good time. He never passed up an opportunity to tell a story
or make someone laugh. He never met someone he didn’t like or didn’t
like him! He loved to golf and work with wood. He made the most
beautiful clocks, and if you received one, you knew you were loved by
the best. Heaven has a very special angel. We are much richer for having
Gerry proudly served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War, where he
was stationed on Okinawa.
Gerry was a member of Bethel Lutheran Church of Biloxi.
