    Hello Barwidi family: I just now heard about Gerald’s passing. I was so saddened to hear. I have memories of working at the Mill and seeing Gerald at the BOF. After he retired, I would see him down at the theatres in his sharp red jacket! My deepest sympathies. God bless.

    I’m sorry that I just learned of Gerald’s passing last year. My husband Joe, Gerald’s cousin, was very ill last year and passed away on 25 August 2023. Although Joe was too ill to come to Gerald’s funeral, I just want to let you know that I am saddened by learning of it and know that Joe would have been to. My your memories comfort you.
