The congregation at MMAE offers its deepest condolences to the family of Gerry Davidson. For many years, until he became ill, Gerry was a regular at Friday night minyans, often with his friend Paul Botwinick. Gerry was an enthusiastic story teller and an all around friendly and pleasant man. We have fond memories of Gerry sitting in the lobby waiting for the rest of the minyannaires to show up, engaging with everyone who would listen. May his memory be for a blessing to his family.

We are heartbroken to hear of the loss of dear Jerry, affectionately called "Dadoo"by our boys. Jerry was a treasured friend who loved everyone and always was so kind and generous. Mark has been missing him so much. We loved him very much and are so sorry for your loss.

A generous and gentle soul. A passion for Opera like few I’ve known. As he sets off on his journey into the cosmos, I know one of his first stops will be to stand along side his favorite tenor Richard Tucker. He’ll surely have plenty of questions and ask him to sing a song or two. God bless you Uncle Jerry.

Jerry explained to me the meaning of the word "mensch", and he was truly a mensch. That's what he wanted to be, and he was. I will miss a very good friend (and fellow opera lover). My wife and I extend condolences to his extended family, which we have been privileged to become close to.
