He loved to cook and was known for serving delicious food for J&J’s Barbecue.

Recently he had his own barbecue stand where the food received rave reviews. He enjoyed seeing everyone at the stand and made sure that customers went away satisfied.

Gerry was the kind of friend that would give you the shirt off of his back. He believed in the Golden Rule – that you should always treat others the way you would want to be treated.

In his free time he loved to watch racing on the TV. He was a big fan of Auburn Tigers football and liked to go fishing.

Survivors include a son and daughter-in-law, Ryan and Anna Bass of Franklin; grandson, Blake Bass; a sister, Jean Baucom; and a number of other relatives and friends.
