GLOVERSVILLE – Mr. Gerald P. “Jerry” Crosier, age 74, of Gloversville, New York, passed away in a peace filled and dignified presence on Friday morning, November 1, 2019, at Fulton Center for Rehabilitation. He received wonderful tender loving care there and his family is very appreciative of this.

He was born on October 8, 1945, in Cambridge, New York, a son of the late Lawrence W. and Jane Ellen Crosier. He moved to St. Johnsville as a child in 1954 and after his high school years he entered the United States Navy serving our country during the Vietnam War. After his service time, he married Nancy Hogan and they had two daughters, Debbie and Tracy.

On December 15, 2000, Jerry was united in marriage with Robin J. Reynolds. The couple attended Calvary Reformed Church, in Hagaman, New York and Jerry really enjoyed singing in the church choir. He also sang with the choir at St. John’s Reformed Church in St. Johnsville. Jerry worked with Amsterdam Printing in maintenance and was a courier for Key Bank. He was a volunteer and active with Meals on Wheels and was subsequently awarded for his dedication to this cause.

Jerry was a kind soul with a warm heart. He was a wonderful husband to Robin and loved the children dearly. Everyone just absolutely adored Jerry and we fondly reflect upon his given nickname of ‘cutie’.
