He especially enjoyed hunting, fishing, gardening, farming, and simply just enjoying scouting nature. He will be remembered as a master food plotter and how he truly made the best pickles and sauerkraut around! Gerry also enjoyed operating his tractor, riding 4 wheelers, riding snowmobiles, and watching trains. He was a sports enthusiast and a huge fan of Detroit sports!

Above all, Gerry absolutely adored and cherished his grandchildren and he just loved to follow them around and watch them in their life journeys. He will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him. Gerry is survived by his wife and best friend, Joan (Anschuetz) Jordan, to whom he married on October 1, 1960.
