I spent a summer as a student salmon netter at Cromarty in the late 60's with another student called Duncan Craig. We befriended Jerry, who that summer was fishing Eathie Station single-handed. We had many adventures together and remained friends for years afterwards. Jerry was a "character" and a man of many talents. Comment left on 16 March 2007 at 09:14 by John Beaton
My late father was Gerry's elder brother (Charles or Charlie) I knew of Gerry's existance and missed him by a mere 5-10 minutes when ordering flowers for Aunt Jeanette’s funeral, around 1978 and in Dingwall. I am actually seeing Gerry for the first time in my 63 years and would dearly love to discover more about him. Comment left on 15 July 2020 by David Smith
I'm sure there are much better stories about Gerry than this, but two things I remember from very soon after I moved to Cromarty in the late 80s. He fell asleep with a cigarette on my sofa at an impromptu hogmanay party and burnt a hole right in the middle of it. And he tried to persuade me that the m in Glenmorangie was silent so it should be pronounced Glenorangie. Still makes me smile! Comment left on 23 July 2020 by Estelle Quick

Ah, happy to see photos of my Great Uncle Gerry as I reminisce and tell stories of him to some of his youngest relatives. Some of my earliest childhood memories include him like when I was taken in my jammies to watch Barkly House burn down after Uncle Gerry's magic mushroom wine caught fire after he got drunk and fell asleep with a lit cigarette. Glad noone was hurt. Comment left on 17 December 2022 by Steffi
Steffi we must be cousins! My Dad was Gerry's eldest brother. when Jeanette passed away I missed him by 15 minutes when I ordered flowers from Interflora, he was in the Dingwall shop. Comment left on 24 December 2022 by David V Smith
