I am sorry to hear of the passing of old friend and Classmate of 1967 Fair Park. Gerald was certainly one of the most upbeat, positive and happy people I knew. We shared two years in the same dorm at LaTech. The only thing is Gerald wasn't a very good Booray player, ha! I shared a couple of tales from those days and sent it to HIS email which I have on file as a classmate. I am so very sorry for your loss, Rosemary. I met you a couple of times long ago, once at the aorport when we were greeting long time friend Jim Bogert, another partner in "crime". Those were the days! Gerald made a nice career path for himself. I am sorry I never met your children but am certain they were raised right and will miss their Daddy.

My sincerest condolences to the Reeves family. One of my fondest memories of Mr. Gerald is his response when I asked how he was doing; he always replied “happy to be here” with a big smile! It’s probably been nearly twenty years since I’ve seen him, but that has stayed with me. Mr. Gerald was a tremendous help to me as a non-traditional student (I was a freshman at 40) st Tech and later on, as an instructor. His patience and kindness were a constant. I extend prayers of comfort and strength to his family and friends.

Ruston lost one of its true good guys the day Gerald went to heaven. If you went to the Louisiana Tech Bookstore during the time he was the manager, you either knew him, had heard of him or most certainly heard him! His booming voice and resounding laugh could fill the building. He was always there to lend a helping hand and direct you to just the right spot. We will miss seeing him at Tech sporting events where he had a bigger than life presence. Our boys, Cass and Mitch, talked about him long after they graduated from Tech. We were honored to be called his friends.Bobby and Dianne Jefcoat

Billy, Randy & all members of this beloved family. It is so hard to part with a loved one in any family. My heart goes out to each and every one of you. I can remember your brother working for Beall-Ladymon. He was a gentle soul and was admired by many. I cherish the moments I have shared with this family over the years. All of my love to this family, especially Billy and Randy. In my thoughts and prayers. Danny Ford....

We will never forget Gerald. He will forever be in our memories. There is a new player in Heaven now. Gerald will keep the Heavens clean, and there will be laughter throughout. One memory of Gerald was at the beach in Alabama, where he teamed up with two young teenagers and played "Monkey in the Middle", and yep, Gerald was in the middle. The next day he could hardly move his arms and shoulders, they hurt so bad. Love and prayers to all of the Reeves.
