For the next 65 years they would devote their lives to their children and many grand and great- grandchildren.

Gerry loved fishing and hunting and especially enjoyed flying his brothers to The Forks and Moosehead and Chamberlain Lakes. He loved both playing and watching hockey, playing for local teams including the famous “Flying Frenchmen”. Gerry was very well known throughout the twin cities for his integrity, honesty, and skill as he worked as a master plumber/heating technician for local companies as well as his own business.
