He had a wide array of interests including aerodynamics, airplanes and helicopters, and loved keeping up with the newest advancements in technology. He worked as a D.J. as a young man and enjoyed music and getting people dancing. He built his own house, built his own iron railings and was a Jack-of-all-Trades. Gerry was mostly self-taught, and was always reading, learning and creating.
