  • Sharon, Kerry, Chantal & Grandchildren, Sorry to hear of the loss of such a great person. We had many fun times with the Girls Fastball days. Gerald had very many funny phrases to express to all around him. It was a pleasure to work in Agriculture with Gerald. May God Bless all of you, Ron & Phyllis - Posted by: Ron & Phyllis Marchenski (Friends) on: Apr 27, 2019
