Born in New Jersey on June 7, 1935, he was the son of Eugene and Clara Meadows.

Gerry was an active member of Penfield Wesleyan Church, leading and supporting many ministries throughout the years. He and Linda worked together leading Marriage Encounter weekends and were fortunate to travel the world in this position. They were involved in this ministry for 20 years and were great examples of what God intended marriage to be. Linda was involved in a local Community Bible Study class and Gerry assisted in videotaping different things for the class. He eventually started an evening couples’ class and faithfully served as teaching director for 19 years. Gerry loved being around people. He always took time and enjoyed getting to know a person’s story. Gerry was a passionate sailor and enjoyed sailing the area lakes. He also enjoyed golfing and tending his garden.
