To the family: I am so sorry for your loss!

Gerry, used to work for me as a driver at Woods. I will always remember the good talks we had after he came in from a weeks run on the road. (It would always start with "Daniel we need to talk") I enjoyed his infectious laugh, his occasional stubbornness, and his overall willingness to always get the job done right! He liked to joke a bit and it was always fun

I truly love this man. He taught me so much over the years. He was a Man's Man. He worked very hard for everything he ever had. He taught me to never give up. He taught me what real friendship really is. He was a proud man. He also loved his family very much and cherished his loved one's. He was stubborn to sometimes to a fault. But he was Old School it was his way or no way
