  1. A lot of good times over the years. So many hockey games in a lot of different cities. Tons of hijinks and hilarity. Road trips to find the oldest and sharpest cheese known to man. I’m glad we got to do that stuff. And I’ll say what I said after almost every game: Get Up There. You’ll know what that means. I’m going to miss you a lot. Godspeed.

    Your brother, ‘Moose’

  4. Sheets,

    Gone way too soon… Hockey games will never be the same without you there. I thank you personally for everything you did to try and assist me with my health issues. You were a valued friend for over 15 years and I will miss our chats about woodworking projects. My deepest condolences to Anne and the entire family, words cannot express how sorry I am. The Amerks lost a true fan, and everyone shall miss you deeply.

  5. To all of Jerry’s friends–the guys at golf, the Amerks fans, all the co-workers over the years that became friends, to the girls and regulars at Romig’s, and especially to the toastbarn guys—he loved you all, and I love you too. Thanks for all the wonderful memories. Anne.

  6. Anne, I was shocked to hear of Jerry’s death. My deepest sympathy to you and your family, Jim, Mark & Beverly. We had a lot of fun when we worked together, at Christmas Parties and at your house. He made me a coffee table that I will cherish forever. I am truly very sorry.

  7. Gerry,

    I am saddened by the news. You were the best childhood friends and neighbors a guy could ever have. I have certainly benefited from all we learned and did together growing up. I’m thrilled to see what a wonderful husband and father you were. I’m not surprised. You were one of the most genuine and caring people I’ve ever met and I’m sure many people benefited from the way that you made the most of life.

    My sincerest condolences to Gerry’s family’¦ I know what a special person he was.

  8. Gerry
    I was so saddend when I got the news. Like Jimmy said its not supposed to happen this way. You were always a fine gentleman and a great craftsman. I just wish I knew you when I was going to the Amerks games. RIP.

  9. I only met Gerry recently but I was proud to have known him for even such a short time. My depest condolences to wife Anne, brother Jim, Jill & Jesse and all family members. The fond memories will never be lost. Jack M. Risewick, Caneadea, NY

  10. I wouldn’t know where to begin in trying to sum up the forty years of antics, exploits and all the inside jokes that that no one else will ever understand. You will be missed more than words can describe and my heart goes out to Ann and the family.

    The Royal Order of Lobsters is now officially down one member. And as always, the Miami Beach audience is the best audience in the world. Goodnight everyone! See’ya round the plant.
