Gerald enjoyed deer hunting, partridge hunting, and loved ice fishing at Long Point and Zipple Bay. He enjoyed being in the outdoors and introducing his children to the outdoors.   He logged on the weekends mostly for the enjoyment of being outdoors and helped his father-in-law Jack Laffin in the woods.  He owned four dogs at the present time and loved each of them.  He liked taking them for walks when he was able.  He enjoyed playing catch with his daughter Karlyn when she played softball.  He enjoyed watching his daughter’s sporting events very much.
