Meet Legacy Society Member Gerald Ross
Gerald Ross was only four years old when Lou Gehrig became a New York Yankee in 1925. That year, Gehrig began his record-setting consecutive game streak of 2,130 games, earning him the nickname "Iron Horse." Gerry, a life-long baseball fan, vividly remembers sitting by the radio in his home in Michigan as Gehrig delivered his famous "luckiest man" speech on July 4, 1939.
An iron horse himself, Gerry is still working at 87 years of age, representing furniture and lighting companies as he has for more than 50 years. When a colleague of his died recently from ALS, Gerry sought to combine his passion for "doing some good for others," with his desire to pay tribute to his friend, by establishing a charitable gift annuity with The ALS Association.
