Over the span of his career, Gerry lived in Columbia, MD, San Jose, CA, Tampa, FL; and Atlanta, GA.

He treasured his visits to Connecticut to spend time with Bryan and his family. He would always make pancakes with the girls, and they even recently taught him to “gritty.” He was known for giving the best hugs.
In the summer of 2022, Gerry married Kara, and the two of them enjoyed their time together living in the country in Washington, Virginia. They quickly found they shared many interests and planned a future together. Despite his cancer diagnosis a few months later, their relationship remained steadfast. Kara’s care and devotion during the remaining months of his life were appreciated by Gerry’s family and friends.
