August 1, 1925 – October 13, 2016
Gerhard was a smart, energetic man- often with a twinkle in his eye, since he loved joking with people. He loved being with people and lending a helping hand when he could. He liked to challenge himself too – physically by taking his daily walk and mentally by keeping up with the current news and keeping all his finances in order. But despite the fact that he was such an inspiration to others he was very humble. That is how he is remembered by his wife of 59 years – Irmgard; daughter Renate, granddaughter Natalie; son-in-law Jim and all who had the honor to know him.
