Farewell to our dad, a fiercely independent man who was proud of his Irish roots. Dad was an accomplished journeyman as a steamfitter/pipefitter who generously helped many a person. Gerry passed away July 4, 2014 at the age 81 and is survived by his five children: Gerry (Jeannie), Dan, Mark, Pam and Kathy (Jim) along with numerous grandchildren. May he rest in peace. A private gathering was held by family at dad’s request to celebrate his life. If desired, memorial donations to Hospice of Windsor or the charity of your choice would be appreciated.
