We loved him so much and he had the best smile. We had so much fun with him at the track and with parties. The world was a better place because of him. He will be deeply missed. See you soon.
He will truly be missed. I have some of the BEST memories of him, i will never forget! Some of the best times of my life were spent growing up on the lake with this family. My heart aches for them all. RIP Uncle Gerald!
Beautiful tribute to a man we all truly loved. Rest In Peace little brother. Our lives (holidays, camping, life in general) will never be the same. This is not goodbye, this is until we meet again.
