Gerald was born and raised in Hurley, Wisconsin. After high school, he entered the military (U.S. Army) and was a paratrooper in the 82nd and 101st Airborne. While serving his country, Gerald earned numerous badges / awards as a marksman and parachutist. Following the military, Gerald was employed by Caterpillar Tractor Company and later by Southeastern Products, from which he retired in 2007. In his spare time, Gerald thoroughly enjoyed hunting and fishing with his dear friends, namely Chuckie, Ronnie and Dennis. Each year Gerald planted an enormous garden and tended to his beautiful flowers. However, what brought Gerald the most joy in life was spending time with his family. He will live on in our hearts forever.
