Gerry was a true outdoorsman. He loved fishing and hunting. Gerry loved to travel out west to South Dakota and visit family while hunting. Gerry also cherished his family land and was a member of the Jump River Gun Club. Fishing in Sylvania was another one of his true passions/traditions that he loved doing with his family. However, out of all these things, he truly cherished his time with his wife, children and grandchildren.
