SOUTH PARIS — Gerald A. Wilmot, 66, passed away peacefully in his home in South Paris on Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2014 surrounded by his caring staff. Gerry eventually succumbed to a persistent respiratory illness.

Gerry was a longtime resident of the Hebron, South Paris and Harrison area. He attended a number of local day programs. Gerry was a good worker and one of his favorite jobs was washing and cleaning local fire trucks and cruisers. Throughout his career, Gerry made a host of friends and he will be truly missed.

Gerry attended Special Olympics for years and won a multitude of medals. He enjoyed all aspects of this event, especially the final dance. He was a very social person and made friends easily. One of Gerry’s favorite things in life was anything to do with professional wrestling. He knew all the wrestlers’ names and attended live events whenever possible.

Gerry leaves behind two lifetime housemates, Georgia Cote and Janis Norris, as well as two residential support families, the Arsenault/Anderson and the Beller families, that embraced him and his housemates in their midst for more than 35 years.

A celebration of Gerry’s life will be held in mid-April in the South Paris area with interment to follow in Gray.  Time and location will be announced at a later date.
