Gerald Richard Longman entered into the presence of his Lord and Savior and exchanged his earth for his heavenly home on December 11, 2023. He was born in Denver on February 8, 1938 to John Philip Longman and Mildred Irene King. Jerry was a school teacher in Delta, CO for 20 years and a school teacher for Albuquerque Public Schools for 15 years.
