Gerald was one of three children born to Violet and Martin Neary and was the most wonderful father anyone could have ever wished to have had. He had one son "Jason Robert John Neary" born to him and one adopted daughter. Dad worked many jobs throughout his life before his last professional career. Dad was always known by all his employers as hard working, and someone that always did his very best.

Dad was always great fun to be around and always had a wonderful sense of humor. He was always very confident, and loved to make his friends and family laugh with stories from his past. He was always a easy man to speak too. He loved people and would always treat others with the same respect as they gave him, and if he could help you in anyway he would always do his best.


He had many friends and was loved and admired everyone that knew him. Many of his friends would even copy the way he would dress, which i think was only born out of the love for him.


One of dad's great loves was the Seaside town of Weymouth in "Dorset" here in England where we would spend most of our summer holidays. He adored Weymouth's beautiful harbor and even more beautiful "Nothe Gardens" which overlooks "Portland Island" and "Portland Naval Base" which was where his father was stationed for sometime during the war with the Navy after being transferred from the Army. And like me dad always had a great love of boats and the sea, and loved to fish just as he did back home. And even as a family we all shared many happy years together in Weymouth.

Dad loved the outdoors, and whenever he could he loved to spend whatever time he had around the countryside and among the woods and the trees just as he would do as a boy. He would often spend long weekends fishing along the banks of the "River Wye". And you would rarely see him return home without a large Pike or Salmon. Dad and i would fish together many times, and even as a boy i would sit and watch him spin fishing for Pike, and he would always know just where to find them hiding along the darkest places along the river and among the weeds. Dad was also a great rife shooter which was something that was recognised very early on from his army years with "The Herefordshire Light Infantry". I would target shoot with dad as a teenager and as a young man, but as good as i was i could never match him.

He was also a very good cook which is something that he has also past to me. Dad was also a blood donor for many years, and despite his busy lifestyle he would regularly donate many pints of blood over the years. and in all those years he never missed a session until he was later diagnosed with a heart condition later in 1994. To me and everyone that knew him there was only one "Jack" and that was my dad, and i know that if i live to be a hundred i will never be the man he was. Biography to be finnished...
