    Gerry was a highly respected individual in the promotional products industry and will be greatly missed. When Jean and I first got involved in the industry, Gerry was an invaluable resource as he taught us so much about embroidery and the promotional products industry. Thanks Gerry. You will be forever in our hearts.

  10. I was very sorry to read that Gerry had passed away. I had no idea he was ill. I have some fond memories of Gerry with First Impressions. I first met him in the early 70’s and he always had a friendly smile and a good handshake. I have some pleasant memories of him on the Stampede caravan Committee as well. He was a successful business man and was very well respected by all. Please accept my sincerest condolences.

  19. Mason and Clayton, I was so saddened to hear of your dads passing. He was the type of guy that could keep everyone entertained with his funny stories and positive outlook on life. Anytime I went to pick Evan up at your house he always asked how, Cam and Brendan and I were doing. Whenever he spoke of you two boys his voice was brimming with pride and I could see the sparkle of love in his eyes. The world has lost a great father, business leader and true Canadian original. Cameron, Brendan, Evan and I hope the love from all those around you at this time will help you both. God Bless

    I have never met Gerry but he was obviously a very kind and thoughtful man as he allowed us the great priviledge of staying in his beautiful Phoenix residence recently without ever meeting us. Our thoughts go out to all of his family in such a difficult time.
