Gerry was a special friend and we will always remember him as an upbeat, happy guy here in the Park. We enjoyed the time we spent at our house or theirs playing games, sharing a meal, eating his famous potato pancakes or just sitting and talking. Our heart goes out to the entire family and we will remember you in our thoughts and prayers. Love to all!

Our depest sympathy goes out to all the family with the passing of a happy and generous man I meet him about 40 years ago when I meet his son Gerald . We spent a lot of time at gerry's camp as he was biulding it . i had a lot of laughs with him . I can remember spending the night at the camp and Gerald and was just yous guys having fun . I can remember Gerald and I sleeping in , in the morning and Mr Reiss coming into our bedroom that had no walls yet and pouring cold water on our heads and telling us that it was day time and we had to get up . it wasnt funny then but when we think back I would propibly do the same thing . I am soooooo sorry that I found out the arrangement the day after . We all at work was lookinf every day in the paper and nothing , didnt think to check the Isaland . Gerald and Shelva we all at work are thinking about yous and if you need any thing just give us a call , we will come runnimng . Thinking of you John .

I am so sorry for your loss. My memories of Uncle Jerry are always of him laughing, kidding and dancing. He sure enjoyed life! May you take comfort in your memories in the coming days and may God give you strength and comfort.
