Gerald was the fourth son of a family of nine boys who, as a sharecropper family, lived in the surrounding areas of Dothan, AL. Gerald became a public accountant, serving the area for 20 plus years. He was an active member of Carmel Assembly of God church and served there for many years prior to his wife's illness. He was a coach in the local community and poured into the lives of young men, both the spirit of competitiveness and lessons of a godly life. He was a loving and devoted husband of 62 years, a godly and caring father of 4, and enjoyed his 7 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren to the fullest. He will be remembered by friends and family as a steadfast Christian, fun loving and full of life.
