  1. So sorry to read about Gerry’s passing he was a wonderful person, a great fiend, we graduated together, he will be surley missed.

  2. I’m so sorry to hear about Gerry’s passing. He was an incredible person whom I will miss dearly. Without his confidence in me, I would not have been able to start my first business as easily as I did. His smile and chuckle will always be in my heart. He also had the patience of Job to put up with my wretched attempts at golfing. My sincere condolences to his family.

  3. I will always remember Gerry’s sense of humor and love of life from my days working with him at HSBC. I considered him a mentor and a friend and though I hadn’t seen him in many years, I often thought of him. My condolences to his family and friends.
