Gerald was a mechanic who owned his own garage for many years. He also was self-employed and worked in the woods as a forester. When he was not working, he enjoyed spending time with his family going on road trips and camping. He enjoyed woodworking as a hobby, he liked to keep himself busy. He made several 18-wheelers and heavy machinery, animals, wishing wells, bird houses, furniture, etc. He could make pretty much anything out of wood, his talents were endless.
