If you ask a hundred people who was Gerald Scrapper, they’d each tell you a different story. A fisherman, a teacher, a music lover and singer of his own bedroom concerts, coach, a cheerleader, a loving family man, a great ball player, sports lover, and they’d even tell you some stories of him just being goofy. He was all those things and more. Most of all he was an amazing Husband, Father, and Papa to his family. He enjoyed spending all his time with his family just sitting outside and being together.
