He farmed and ranched in his early years in Kansas and Nebraska, and moved to Rice with his parents and brother Virgil in 1956. The family started the Golden Tree Farm in 1958. He was an active member of the Minnesota Tree Growers Association. Gerald enjoyed visiting with the many customers who came to buy Christmas trees each year. He was a member of Grace Baptist Fellowship where he served as a church deacon and treasurer. Gerald enjoyed hunting and fishing in his spare time. His greatest joy though was spending time with his grandchildren.
