  1. With all our love– the Browning family. Cheryl & Gerry– together forever. Always in our hearts.

  2. Our prayers to the family. He was a long time neighbor and friend. We grew up together on W Craig Street getting into all kinds of mischief. We were able to spend time together in Hawaii when we were both stationed there – him in the Air Force and me in the Navy. Most recently he came by our house often when he was working in Boerne and we rehashed our younger days together. He will be missed by all.

  3. CandleImageGerry, thank you! Thank you for making all of our lives better. You were always happy, you were always joking, you didn’t take life to serious and always did it with a smile. I will miss you. Although we didn’t speak all that often with you living on the other side of the world, it didn’t affect the feelings I had for you. You had a big influence on me and I will always remember such fun times spent together.
    I am glad you are now at peace with Cheryl 50 years together and not more than a week apart. You guys defined true love.
    I can imagine you sitting up there surprised they don’t stock lone star up in heaven ( as I am sure only the good beers go there also) but I have no doubt you will convince them to stock it up there sooner rather than later.
    Take care mate you will be missed but never forgotten.

  4. CandleImageGerry you will be missed so very much, loved your cheeky ways , you always brought a huge smile to Shane’s face when he spoke to you.
    You are with your soul mate and wife of 50 years, a love that continues.
    Love you Gerry.♥️

  5. CandleImageGus and I are devastated at the loss of our dear friend Gerry. Our most treasured memory of him was from our son’s baby shower, back in 2001. Gerry and Gus barbequed chickens and Gerry taught Gus how to stuff beer cans up the chickens’ butts to make them flavorful and moist. We still laugh about that memory today. We will miss him and will always remember the good times.
