    The committee of Kelburne have paid tribute to Gerry's memory by naming an annual award for umpiring in his name. Gerry definitely had his own style of umpiring - you would always know it was a short corner when he was in charge of the whistle.... Kelburne held a very special place in the family, and to know the club will continue to remember Gerry in the coming years is a huge comfort to the family

    Liz and I have many happy memories of time spent with Gerry and Jess. We first met Gerry in late 1962 when three of us took on the executive roles at the Glasgow Student Charities Association. We ran the most successful annual appeal at that time, raising over £27,000 for good causes in the West of Scotland, but far more important that we formed friendships that were to last, literally, a lifetime. While Gerry contributed in many ways to the overall campaign, my memory of his greatest fiscal breakthrough was that he identified that the price of a bag of coal, the only heating in Buccleuch Street, was identical to that of a quarter bottle of vodka - the drink of choice of our generation. It must have been a very cold winter in 1962/63 as we consumed many bags of coal!
