Obituary of Gerald Alvah Aldrich

Please share a memory of Gerald to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Gerald Alvah Aldrich Gerald A. Aldrich passed away peacefully at home with his family in Geneva, N.Y., on April 25, 2021, at the age of 76. Jerry was born in Canton, N.Y. He graduated from Canton Agricultural and Technical Institute and worked at Corning Glass Works prior to serving in the U.S. Army as a medic. Jerry spent much of his life operating a dairy farm in Canton. He worked hard from sun up to sun down, and always liked that you could see results at the end of each day. (He was a master at tinkering, which may have contributed to the long days.) When the cows got to be too much, he could be heard muttering, "Bald headed underwear!" a phrase that still makes his grandchildren giggle. In his later years, he struggled with dementia, although he never forgot about needing a good hot meal for supper. Some of his 'forever' memories included rabbit hunting with his brothers, making maple syrup, and spending time on the riverbank with his family. He sure loved tearing up the dance floor at weddings and events. Jerry is survived by his sons Brian, Alvah and Shannon along with their spouses and five grandchildren, who will forever dance around the house in his memory. He is also survived by his wife of 30 years, Judy Aldrich; sisters Jean Thorbahn and Pauline (Wes) Snyder; brothers Dale (Barb) Aldrich and Jon (Joan) Aldrich; and was preceded in death by his parents, Alvah and Ethel Aldrich, and his brother, Loren. Many overjoyed, tail wagging pups surely greeted him at the gates of Heaven. There will not be a service.
