It was enjoyable working with Gerry for many years at Cooper Energy Services. He did a great job with engineering and was always pleasant to work with. He was also a very good friend and a good Christian example to others. My condolences to his family. We will miss him.

Very sorry to hear this news. Gerry was and still is greatly respected at Cooper. He was one of the best Ajax Engineers around. Gerry developed some spreadsheets to estimate exhaust emissions and we use them several times each week. He will be missed.

Our condolences to Gerry's family. I worked with him for 10 years in Springfield after the Corry closed. I often think of him and as he always answered my dumb questions and vetted my ideas.
