Tribute by Juanita: “I’ve spent 30 years with Gerald. He was a very spiritual person, loved teaching anything to the younger generations, played baseball and softball until his late 40s. He was a talented artist, loved children, and was a beloved basketball coach to our son’s generation for years. We have a beagle named Scooby that he loved beyond mention, and asked to see Scooby even the day he passed. He loved fishing and being on the river, tubing, camping or in a John boat. He and our son built the new glass floating staircase in Roanoke Memorial Hospital. There’s so much more I could say about this wonderful sweet soul that never met a stranger or told one in need no, but anyone that knew him understands what I mean. I was lucky enough that he chose me to spend his life with, and his special qualities helped mold me into who I am today. We shared a love so deep and special it is indescribable, but it’s what fairy tales are made of. He cast a big shadow and shielded us all from harm. He left big shoes for his children to fill.”
