My condolences and deepest sympathies for your loss.
Uncle Gerry brought many smiles to us all.

Dear Robin, kids and grandkids: Gerry was a wonderful man, and I share your great sorrow in losing him. The tribe of kids, grandkids and great-grandkids have been his pride and source of everyday joy…his face always showed how he felt when he spoke of you. Buck repeatedly said that Gerry was the smartest, funniest, finest person he had ever known…no contradictions, no pretensions, true and strong, a real Human Being. I hope your many wonderful memories bring comfort to all of you. Love from Vicki

Very saddened to hear about Gerry’s passing. What I’ll always remember the most is how whenever he would see me, and this goes back all the way to when Kevin I first met as kindergarten kids back in 1980, he would say “Hey Brian” and then start laughing as he prepared to tell me a joke. Even before he got to the punchline you’d be laughing along with him as he told the joke. It didn’t matter if the joke was actually funny or not, he always had you laughing along with him as he told the joke. Gerry’s infectious laugh and jovial personality will always be something that stays with me. My deepest condolences to the extended Breton family and all of Gerry’s countless friends.

Dear Robin and Family: It is so sad to learn that one more loved one has passed so soon. Gerry was the wonderfully full of life cousin whose company we appreciated fully. His storytelling always brought laughter to all of us. Good memories of happy family gatherings of all kinds will remain with us because of his jovial disposition.
On behalf of everyone in our family, wishes of strength and courage to you and yours through the days ahead.

Fleurette (Flo) and Bob Delorme
