You forgot to mention the now defunct gas station in pike. Gerry and I fixed a few cars in there , like mine. We solved the worlds problems at least once a month , created some new ones , and gossiped about any one that could take it. all topics were on the table. I will miss him.
Our sincere condolences to you and the family. May he RIP !

Thank you for the memories. Because he trained me so well I will continue his work in solving more of the world problems, and yes creating new ones. His son, Gerald.
