Donna, Mutch, Marcia, Andrea and Family I send my deepest sympathy and prayers for strength at this time. I was shocked and saddened when I heard. Simply put, Gerry was a great friend, and 100% always enjoyable & fun to be around! I remember the days at your home on Bailey, where he introduced me to such things as James Taylor, and Monty Python, while constantly reminding me not to make loud noise for fear of waking up the lady downstairs. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time and may the wonderful memories with Gerry live forever. Alan

Howard Busgang - 6 days ago

Dear Donna, Mutch, Marcia, Andrea and Families, My heart broke when I heard the terrible news of Gerry's passing. Gerry was about as close a friend as I've ever had. All those years we spent together at your home on Bailey Road laughing and plotting made me (for better or for worse) the person I am today. So many great memories, and when he moved to Israel, although we only saw each other intermittently, when we did get together we picked it up like we were fourteen years old back on Bailey Road. And as difficult as the last few months were he was still the same Gerry when we spoke - funny, irreverent, warm and authentic. I will miss him terribly as will everyone else whose lives he touched. My deepest and most heartfelt condolences.

Dear Donna and Mutch, I was shocked to read of Gerry's passing. I know the special pain of a father losing a son, rather than the other way around, as I too have have had the miserable experience. I knew Jerry when he was still in high school in Montreal, and I often talked to him even after his aliyah whenever he came to shul on one of his visits. He was a bright, go-getting guy whom I admired. We send you our heart-felt condolences. Josie and Arthur Roskies
