Gerald’s love of the land ran deep and he passed that love onto his family. He’d never ask

Papa was his greatest joy. You’d never find him in the coffee shop but you could find him
enjoying a lively square dance, which he enjoyed for 31 years. He was a member of the
Maysville Wrangler Square Dance Club.

Sister, Mary Ann Willis.
