Gerry was born Feb. 7, 1947, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the son of Emmett and Marian Rasmussen. He was a school bus driver for several years. Gerry was a very kind and loving soul who was devoted to his family. The oldest of five children, Gerry would always tell his siblings since he was the oldest he was entitled to call and check in frequently to be sure they were all doing well. He would always end his conversations with his siblings by telling them "he loved them very much." He loved drawing and painting on canvas and cherished peaceful moments taking in the tranquility of the sights and sounds of nature.
Gerry will be greatly missed by all who loved him.
