Mrs. Pylman, my sincere sympathy to you and your family. Gerry was the accountant for the law firm I worked for so I have known him for 43 years and he has done my personal taxes for many years! He was such a kind, elegant gentleman and it was a pleasure to talk to him whenever he came into the office. He certainly was a stylish dresser and so professional! A really nice man! May your memories give you peace.

Dear Gerry, Scott & Candy, Jim, Ruth and I were saddened to see that “ Mr. Pylman “ passed away. He was such a good friend of our Dad and Mom( Jim & Gerry Knott). They all got along so well and set a good example of what it is to be a friend. Find memories of Ludington St. Park in the fall, clean cars, dressing well, and schnauzers. ( even a Manhattan now and again!? 😊) Your dad was a generous godly gentleman and will be missed. Blessings to all of you….especially “ Mrs. Pylman “

I have known Jerry for 28 years. He was a wonderful accountant and I will miss our conversations about crazy tax law. Rest In Peace Jerry. My sincere condolences to his family.
