Therese and Family,
I was saddened to read that Gerry had passed. I had the pleasure of working with Gerry at Purcell Associates on a highway project in Westport, CT and then on the Harry Gampel UCONN basketball arena with both Gerry and Therese. I truly enjoyed Gerry's humor and easy going manner. He was always fair but firm. I will remember him forever and may he rest in peace !

To the Scully family. I am so thankful I was able to spend some time with Gerry. Although it was short, I was able to enjoy the twinkle in his eye when he told an Air Force story, or a funny joke. He seemed like he had an adventurous spirit. I wish I had known him longer. My heart and prayers go out to all of you.
