Gerald was survived by children, Tammy (Chadwick) Lacey, and Elizabeth (Lloyd) Kyrk; grandchildren, Heather Banks, Ashley Banks, and Hayley Kyrk; great-grandchildren, Aalyah and Teslyn.
Gerald moved around the country quite frequently so he wasn’t ever in one place for too long. He was a veteran in the U.S. Army, during his stint he was a payroll clerk and he had earned medals for National Service, Vietnam Service, and Vietnam Campaign. Gerald loved spending time with his family. He was an arts and crafts kind of person and would regularly do puzzles and fun crafts with the family. He was a loving grandpa, the best hugger, and would leave everyone around him with a smile.
