Gerald lived south of Woodham for 51 years. He was an active community member and established a well known construction business in the local area. Nine years ago he relocated to Exeter where he enjoyed having neighbours close by and family members too. He spent a great deal of his time watching his grandchildren participate in various sports activities and he took great pride in growing flowers that bloomed non-stop during the summer months.
