Throughout his retirement years, Gerry found joy in supporting his beloved Baylor Bears and spending precious moments with his cherished family. However, it was his passion for quarter horses that truly defined him. His love for these magnificent creatures brought him great happiness and created lasting memories.

Gerry is preceded in death by his grandson, Brandon Buchi, and his brother, Billy McMenamy. He is survived by his children, Kyle McMenamy, Melanie (Kirk) Buchi, and Patrick (Crystal) McMenamy, as well as his grandchildren, Riley MacCallum, Kayla Buchi, Kylie McMenamy, Reagan McMenamy, and Weston McMenamy. He will be deeply missed by his sister, Shirley Bowen, sister-in-law Judy McMenamy, and nieces and nephews Barry, Terry, Troy, Suzanne, and Janet.
