Gerald was preceded in death by his parents, Marian and Gerard Denn.
His daughter, Christine Anne Bjerke, and his son, Mark William Denn.
Gerald proudly served his country and was a veteran of the Korean War.
Gerald served on the Hastings Fire Department as a volunteer Fireman for many years, and also loved to support them with their annual booya.
Gerald retired from Koch Refinery, where he worked as the Safety Marshal. He also supported his wife Pauline in her ceramics business, where they worked together to create many beautiful pieces that some of you may own. In his free time, he enjoyed hunting, fishing, golfing, gardening, and would love to play bingo or try to beat you in a game of cards. He will be sadly missed by his family and friends.”
