I am very sorry to hear about the passing of Gerald. We had so much fun
showing horses together with our families. He was a tremendous person who
did a lot for the community. I am sorry that we will miss the services. I had other
commitments that could not be changed. God bless you all.

We were so sorry to read of Gerald passing in the Standard.  He was a great
man, so good with kids, drove our Topeka 4-H group to Purdue when we won
Share the Fun contest years ago.  He touched so many lives as a bus driver for
33 years for Westview. Rest in Peace, Gerald, you will be remembered so well for
kindness to kids..
