  1. I am saddened to learn of Ken’s passing. Family, Friars, Packers, golf — so many passions, so many great conversations over the years. My thoughts are with his family during this difficult time. David Huntington, Williston VT

  2. I had the pleasure of working with Ken at Merrill Lynch in the 70,s He was always a gentleman and a good example of a caring business man…

  3. My best wishes and condolences to Ken’s family. I am truly saddened by this news of his passing. When I think of Ken, I first see a guy with a great sense of humor and a smile on his face. His passion for fishing the Housatonic was infectious. He was great company on the stream, or on a golf course. Though I’ve been in Maine for 15 years, and only spoke to him briefly in the past few years, I’ve always considered him a friend. Thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. Jack Gagnon Lakeville, Maine 11/19/14

  4. Once the boys were not on the same team, I used to try to meet Ken for a late lunch every now and then. But, then I started working in Waterbury and now Hartford, it was not as easy to schedule and I never made it a priority. I guess lesson learned. We got to share moments with our kids, watching them succeed on the ice while a fair amount of insanity prevailed with some parents off the ice. Ken Gerry made my life and my kid’s lives a little better. I remember 6 year old Aiden Tiernan explaining to Ken that Zach had to sit in the middle of the back seat because in his words .he’s both our friends.. He will be missed and I say that not just as a friend, but also as a client. Hang in there Roseann, Alex, Zach and Shannon. I hope they have Big East Tournaments and plenty of golf in heaven.

  5. To the Gerry Family, So sorry to hear of Mr. Gerry’s passing. He was always such a nice person to speak with and always enjoyed seeing him around the club. We spoke often when he was the Club President and he was a pleasure. My condolences to his family and friends during this difficult time. Kara Nuremberg New Haven Country Club

  6. Zach- I’m so sorry for the loss of your father. We are here to make this as easy for you as we can. Please don’t hesitate to ask. Just know that the next time you tee it up and rip a fade, he will be there to give you the downwind and a couple extra yards or drop the putt that’s hanging on the edge. Hang in there buddy

  7. Zach- The boys at Big Blue and all the Friars are saddened by the loss of your Dad. Please let us know if you need anything brotha. Much love.
